Custom Packages

You can create a customized installation package, commonly known as custom package, based on the agents and options that you select in the installation wizard.

When the custom package is deployed on a computer, the package installs the software based on your selections, reducing user interaction. The extent of user interaction depends on the amount of information you want the user to enter during installation.

Custom packages are useful if you need to deploy the same agents and configurations across multiple computers. You can adjust custom packages to your environment requirements. For example:

  • To protect all laptop computers in your organization, you can configure the custom package as a laptop package.
  • To protect UNIX computers operated by native package management systems, you can configure the custom package as a native package.
