Symantec Protection Suite SBE 3.0 vs Symantec Endpoint Protection Suite SBE 12.0.1

I'm looking to replace the antivirus protection on a couple of small networks (5 and 6 user peer-to-peer) with full solution suites, I came across Symantec Protection Suite 3.0 which was a good price per unit (min. 5) for the licences only.

Normally with Symantec products I download the trial version instead of waiting for the media, but everytime I go to the Symantec Protection Suite SBE download I'm pointed at Symantec Endpoint Protection Suite SBE 12.0.1.

Is this the new version or a totally different product, and what's the difference between the two?

Thanks,

Mike

Symantec Protection Suite is as is suggests, a suite of applications that will do the following for you:
  • Secure your EndPoints from Virus / Malware
  • Protect your email from Spam / Phishing threats
  • Backup and recover Desktops and laptops
Symantec Endpoint Protection is just Anti-Virus / Threat protection for the Endpoints.
Yes - they are totally different products.

Thanks Alan - It's definately Protection Suite 3.0 I'm after, but even using your first link for it takes me to a download for Endpoint 12.0. Any idea where I'll find the download I need.
