Hi Stephen,

There is no dedicated sensor for Symantec Endpoint (or any other Security Suite for that matter), but you can try the WMI Security Center Sensor.

Kind regards.

I think the WMI Security Center Sensor is not working on Windows Server OS. How can I monitor Symantec Endpoint Protecton on Windows Server 2012R2?

Hi Christian,

That is correct, the description of the sensor (Section Remarks) also states that it's not working on Windows Server OS. The reason for this is that it queries the WMI Namespace root\SecurityCenter2 which does not exist on Windows Server OS. In this case you would need to find other ways to monitor the Antivir solution running on a Windows Server like monitoring the age of the the anti-virus signatures as described here for example and/or additionally whether the regarding processes and services are running.

Kind regards.
