In this release, we've improved server protection, device management, and SEP SBE device upgrade remediation. Enable intrusion prevention system (IPS) and firewall on servers
IPS and firewall are enabled by default only on Windows desktops and laptops. You can now change the default settings and enable them for Windows servers as well. Security features such as IPS and firewall might result in some performance effect on networks. New preconfigured alert rule to improve SEP SBE upgrades
A new preconfigured alert rule is added to notify you when SEP SBE devices take longer or unable to upgrade to SEP Cloud due to several reasons. The notification helps you to find out more information about possible causes and remediation steps.
The alerts are also displayed in the Partner Managed Console > Alerts
tab for the partner managed accounts. Enhanced device details
When unresolved threats are detected on a Windows or Mac device and its status changes to Compromised
, on the Device Details
page, the device status reason section now lets you view all the threats that are detected on the device. The threat details are linked to Symantec Security Response pages to provide you with detailed analysis and remediation steps about the threats.
