How to monitor if "Network Threat Protection" & "Proactive Threat Protection" is staying up to date on  Symantec EndPoint Protection Manager 11.0

Hi Everyone,

We are currently using Symantec Endpoint 11.0 on our server and Client machines. Every morning i remote into the SEP Protection Manager to make sure all of our client machines "Virus Definitions" are staying up to date. Every day i check SEP Protection Manager and all of the client machines show the "Virus Definitions" are up to date. I've found that a half dozen client machines "Proactive Threat Protection" and/or "Network Threat protection" will not update automatically like the  "Antivirus and Antispyware Protection" does. Some of these machines show the last "Proactive Threat Protection" and/or "Network Threat Protection" definitions update a month old. I only know this if i walk to that client machine and check SEP on that machine. I have found this is happening to a half dozen client machines. Here's my question. Is there a way i can monitor on SEP Protection Manager if the "Proactive Threat Protection" and/or "Network Threat Protection" is staying up to date on the client machines like i can with the Virus Definitions?

Thank you

This kind of reporting feature is not available in SEPM, see a discussion here:

While it was not the answer I was looking for :) , it is in fact the accurate answer.  Now if Symantec will add this feature to future builds.  Thanks.
