Hello. i am new here. How to install Symantec DLP on macbooks?

Reach out to the vendor (Symantec) and have them provide documentation. The Broadcom does have some documentation posted publicly. Deploy the DLP Endpoint Agent in macOS environment. (broadcom.com)
The install should be pretty straight forward. Symantec provides a .pkg which you can just shove into JAMF and deploy with a policy.
Two things the vendor will need to provide information on:
You can figure some of this stuff out with trial and error, but its best to make the vendor provide the documentation. After all they are not providing this endpoint for free, you are paying for the endpoint and the support that comes with it.

Pkg that is deployed to /private/var/tmp/Mac
Script (After) executes cd /private/var/tmp/Mac ./install_agent.sh
Target: All Managed Clients / All Managed Servers
Exclude: Symantec DLP Endpoint Agent - Installed
Criteria for Symantec DLP Endpoint Agent - Installed = True for Extension Attribute: Symantec DLP Endpoint Agent - Installed
EA Data Type: String
EA Input Type: Script:
# check for process
PROCESS=$( pgrep edpa )
#see if process is running
if [[ -z "$PROCESS" ]]; then
I also go a step further with Version check and uninstall/reinstall IF NOT "current"

We package it in composer to install in tmp directory, but we run the install using the files and processes option on the deploy policy. Should change to the package to use the post scrip.

You can package the symantec DLP agent using composer and push it via policy. ( Please check for the compatible mac agent versions and compatible OS versions)
Symantec also provides PPPC file which you can push it as it is under configuration profile.
if you are using DLP extension for outlook client then you also need to push outlook addin certificate to remote clients and make sure that it is trusted. Without this Symantec console will show you critical alerts for outlook addin not deployed.

Also, you'll want to add the plist for the firefox and safari extensions as well.
