When using Endpoint Protection (SEP) in a Dark Network (no internet access), the SEP client reports that "Browser Intrusion Prevention is not functioning correctly." This happens when the client is configured to update content from an Endpoint Protection Manager (SEPM) that only receives updates via JDB. The client will also report this when configured to only receive content updates via Intelligent Updater.
Release : 14.3
There is currently no JDB / Intelligent Updater available for Browser Intrusion Prevention (IPS) content. Disabling and locking Browser Intrusion Prevention will not resolve the issue.
If you would like to use Browser IPS, you will need to configure your clients to update from an internal LiveUpdate Administrator (LUA) or give the SEPM internet access to update. If internet access is not available on that network see:
The issue where clients still show this error after disabling Browser Intrusion Prevention and locking it is still under investigation, this document will be updated once a resolution to that issue is available.
