Disabling User Access to Disable Symantec Endpoint Protection
Created: 10 Jan 2008 | Updated: 21 May 2010 | 8 comments
I have the lastest SEP realease 11.0.1000.1375 installed. I would like to remove the ability for the user to right-click on the SEP icon and disable Symantec Endpoint Protection. I am running into the following issue however.....
No matter how many features I lock I cannot get the Network Threat Protection to remove it's disable feature. All other services have been locked and their disable feature is not available (as expected), but since the Network Threat Protection freature is not disabling this is causing the client to still have the ability to right-click and disable protection. It's true that it is only disabling the Network Threat Protection, but it is really annoying that it is there at all.
For the life of me I cannot find an option to get rid of this. At this point I've even got all the controls unlocked, and I cannot even change settings on the Network Threat Protection.... It tells me that I have locked this feature.
I also have noticed that in my firewall rules policy config the "Inherit Firewall Rules from Parent Group" check box is disabled and not checked.
Any help on getting this Feature to work would be appreciated. At this point I am lost. Please help.
