Is Network Intrusion Prevention is included in default IPS or we need to install SNAC for this..

Currently we have full featues for client firewall and IPS, etc.. we have enable the Network Intrusion Prevention  option in IPS policy , but when see the sep client report Network Intrusion Prevention is not enabled...

Please someone clarify on this ?

it is included by default, no need to install SNAC.

Is the IPS policy applied to the group? is the policy enabled?

We just cross check with 11.0.6 and 12.1 IPS policy,to enable  Network Intrusion Prevention option is not available in 11.0.6 IPS policy whereas in 12.1 we have option to enable the Network Intrusion Prevention.

So that we are confused,, In 11.0.6 client Network Intrusion Prevention feature is installed by default or not..

We have enable the IPS policy for clients..

Just check in SEPM that Intrusion Prevention policy is applied to all the clients..

What is the version of SEP 12.1 you are using ..try SEP 12.1 Ru1

inherited from parent group is disabled.. we have created non-shared policy for clients groups..

the option shows the 'Desktop New IPS policy'. can you please explain where does it show is it disabled?

IPS Policy is not disbaled.. when we generate the client status report Network Intrusion Prevention is disabled for 11.0.6 clients. whereas for 12.1 client Network Intrusion Prevention   is enabled.

My concern is why Network Intrusion Prevention  is not installed in 11.0.6 clients?

Same IPS policy is applied for both 12.1 and 11.0.6 clients..
