The comprehensive risk report needs to have more information about the IPS risk detected or a new report needs to be created for these risks.

The comprehensive rish report does not have enough information to determine what IPS threat have been detected and what computers have been found with threats that need to have fixed.  Either the report needs to be changed to include the following or another report needs to be added to the list for the items shown. 

The following items are needed to help determine what machines need attention and why they need attention.

IPS attacks alerts

       Type           Amount                   Source
  RPC BO          5 Attacks            Computer 1
                        10 Attacks            Computer 2

  Smurf              30 Attacks            Computer 3
               Total  45 Attacks

This is definitely needed , otherwise you do not know how to remediate the IPS Attack. Apparently this is a known defect and has not been fixed as not enough people have complained about it....So people please start voting!

To remediate an attack, this information is really important.

I can see no reason why this should not be working. Customers and Symantec benefits.

I'm currently running SEPM 12.1.5 where I was trying to find a report that shows the IPS alerts but came up empty.  One of our security guys tried to get to a website and got "[SID: 28821] Web Attack: Mass Injection Website 19 detected".  Found which describes the attack but wanted to see the alert the user got in my SEPM along with their computer name to validate the popup that they saw.  So are you guys saying such a report doesn't exist; even in the latest 12.1.6?
