Methods to deploy SVE on the computers

There is a different method with which you can deploy SVE application on client computers:

1. Download and run the SEM Agent on the client computer.

2 Download and run the Remote Installation Tool and then add the computers.

3. Sync with Active Directory groups to deploy SVE.

Method 1:

Download SEM Agent

This process is beneficial when you want to install the SVE client application on a single computer.

To add a computer to the database with the SEM agent, follow these steps:

1. Log on to the SEM console.

2. On the company page, click Add Computer.

3. In the new dialog, click the Download button for the installer.

4. The SEM Agent installer will be downloaded automatically on the endpoint Management.

5. The name of the file has the following format:

For example:

jci_setup__192.168.3.103_8443_102__.exe

Note: Do not rename the downloaded file

6. Run the downloaded .exe file on the target computer that is to be encrypted.

7. After the successful installation of SEM Agent, the computer name should appear in the New computers group.

8. If the new computer should be added to another group, the “jci_setup..” file should be run from Command Prompt with the parameter -G and the group name in the following format:

>jci_setup__207.154.213.48_8443_10002__.exe -G#MY GROUP NAME#

If the group does not exist, the group will be created automatically, and the default encryption policy will be assigned.
