    Marlon,

    Since the file share functionality is designed to be transparent to the user there isn't a way to prevent decryption of particular data if the user has been granted access.  User access to the share is managed by user keys or AD group membership mediating access to a group key.  A regular user cannot remove the encryption from a share but when they access files the data is decrypted on the fly and there's nothing that would prevent the user from saving that file to a non-encrypted location.

    The product SKU for this functionality is "File Share Encryption Powered By PGP Technology".

    The installer for the Symantec Encryption Management Server is a virtual appliance delivered by ISO.  It is based on CentOS.  "SEE Server Suite" is for Symantec Endpoint Encryption which is a different product than file share encryption.  The file with the server ISO is in the "Encryption Management Server" section of the downloads and will be named Symantec_Encryption_Web_<version number>_Full.zip.
