Endpoint Protection


  • IPS is disabled and locked by policy administered at the Symantec Endpoint Protection Manager (SEPM).
  • Despite this being an administrative policy, the client shows a Fix button in the client user interface.


This was by-design prior to 14 RU1-MP1. Symantec development worked on this as part of a product enhancement.


This issue is fixed in Symantec Endpoint Protection 14 RU1 MP1  For information on how to obtain the latest build of Symantec Endpoint Protection, see Download the latest version of Symantec Endpoint Protection.
