Thx

I have Symantec Endpoint Protection running and normally accept the defaults for intrusion protection

What specifically (what setting or whatever) are you looking for?  That is, more detail needed from you.

Are you having a problem?   And if so, please describe.

No sure whether intrusion protection has been deployed to the workstation, as I can see the related tab in client's workstation. (refer to my attached).

See the findings.
Despite its humble beginnings, phishing has come a long way since those first crudely constructed emails. Today, phishing sites can appear and disappear in the length of a coffee break, and it takes more than a little know-how to keep your clients secure.

It should look like this and yes, I think you should turn Proactive Threat and Network Protection both ON. I do this myself and for all clients.

I am looking at SEP Manager now.

Go to Clients (left side) and then expand the view to Protection Technology. In our system, this is all filled out and was set up that way. So from our point of view, we set up the Manager to provide all the features. See below.

Also go to the Policies tab (left side), click on (say) Firewall policy and it says on the right that it was created during installation

Double click on Firewall and there is a check box to enable. So you need to work through these settings.

Firewall status and Security Virtual Appliance is not installed.

Is there something wrong with My Company Group Policy ?  However, when I edit the policy, it say it is enabled....

Thx again.

You should probably uninstall the Symantec Manager, restart the server and install it. Make sure you cover all the bases when you install.
