Event Triggers–ThreatCon Response
Symantec ThreatCon is Symantec's early threat warning system to give people and systems adequate warning to protect data and systems against attack.
You can configure a trigger in a backup job to detect a change in the threat level whenever client computers are connected to the Internet. When the threat level meets or exceeds the level you specify, Backup Exec System Recovery automatically starts a backup job. You can specify a different ThreatCon level for each backup job.
Do Not Monitor – Disable
The backup job does not start when a change in the ThreatCon level is detected
Level 4 – Extreme
Extreme global security threats are in progress
Level 3 – High
An isolated security threat is in progress
Level 2 – Elevated
Security threats may occur, although no specific threats have been known to occur
If client computers are not connected to the Internet, then they are not susceptible to online threats. When they are connected to the Internet at any time, they become vulnerable. You do not have to enable or disable ThreatCon Response when client computers go online or offline.
