Issue/Introduction

Symantec Endpoint Protection (SEP) for Mac client displays "At Risk" when Intrusion Prevention Policy is withdrawn or disabled at the SEPM (Symantec Endpoint Protection Manager).

Customize->Activity->Definition Status will display up-to-date Virus and Spyware Protection and LiveUpdate status but Intrusion Prevention definitions status will be "Not available"
