When SEP (firewall portion) is disabled, what things trigger it to automatically re-enable?

Created: 12 Feb 2013 | 8 comments

I have a client that is allowed to disable SEP, as it interferes with some of his work.  It keeps reenabling by itself.  What events can trigger this?

 

(I know a reboot will restart SEP, but this is happening without a reboot.)

Does the firewall actually re-enable?

I know in the AV policy there is an option to re-enable after X minutes. I don't think the firewall has this option.

SEP will reenable Firewall after specific amount of time as set per Client User Interface Settings.

The Client User Interface Settings are not set to re-enable.  This holds true for all locations under this group.
