Identifying the infected and at-risk computers

You can use the Symantec Endpoint Protection Manager Home page and a Risk report to identify the computers that are infected and at risk.

To identify infected computers

  1. In the console, click Home and view the Virus and Risks Activity Summary.

    If you are a system administrator, you see counts of the number of Newly Infected and Still infected computers in your site. If you are a domain administrator, you see counts of the number of Newly Infected and Still infected computers in your domain.

    Still Infected is a subset of Newly Infected, and the Still Infected count goes down as you eliminate the risks from your network. Computers are still infected if a subsequent scan would report them as infected. For example, Symantec Endpoint Protection might have been able to clean a risk only partially from a computer, so Auto-Protect still detects the risk.

  2. In the console, click Reports.

  3. In the Report type list box, click Risk.

  4. In the Select a report list box, click Infected and At Risk Computers.

  5. Click Create Report and note the lists of the infected and at-risk computers that appear.
