Intrusion prevention is enabled by default. Typically, you should not disable either type of intrusion prevention.
You can enable a log-only mode for browser intrusion prevention to record what traffic it blocks without affecting the client user. You can then use the Network and Host Exploit Mitigation attack logs in Symantec Endpoint Protection Manager to create exceptions in the Intrusion Prevention policy to ignore specific browser signatures. You would then disable log-only mode.
To configure these settings in mixed control, you must also enable these settings in the Client User Interface Mixed Control Settings dialog box.
