It was working fine since long, but I noticed that SEPM stopped updating Antivirus And Antispyware Protection virus definitions and they were almost 1 week + old, rest of definitions including Proactive Threat Protection and Network Threat Protection were up to date.
So there was something wrong with the virus definition update engine.
I tried to manually launch Live Update on SEPM various times, but no use, Every time update all other definitions excluding Antivirus updates.
After few minutes , it will automatically push the definition to SEPM console and it will be distributed to clients in few minutes, All of my clients (100+) took about 20 minutes to update.
Symantec Endpoint Protection 11 (SEP 11) includes a feature called Proactive Threat Protection, which seeks out suspicious behavior on your computer, and isolates it.
Since brand new viruses may not always be immediately detected by antivirus software, Proactive Threat Protection is a good barrier against the unknown.
