Symantec Endpoint Encryption

IMPORTANT: Symantec Endpoint Encryption (SEE) is no longer available for download and should no longer be installed.

  • Existing installations of SEE will continue to work but should be removed, please contact your Certified IT Group to have this done and BitLocker set up instead.
  • If a computer using the CUMC licensed version of SEE needs recovery, please contact us at extension 5-Help, option 5 with any specific errors. If you use a CUMC Certified IT Group other than CUMC IT please notify them to work with us for the recovery.
General Information
  • SEE is not the same as Symantec Endpoint Protection (SEP), the antivirus program used by many Columbia faculty, staff and students; SEP does not offer encryption.
  • SEE was formerly called GuardianEdge. Computers running a previously installed version of CUMC IT GuardianEdge may not be able to open files encrypted by SEE (SEE will be able to open GE encrypted files). Please contact us at extension 5-Help if you have specific questions.
