About monitoring remote clients from the management server

Notifications and logs are essential to maintain a secure environment. In general, you should monitor your remote clients in the same way that you monitor your other clients. You should always check to see that your protections are up to date and that your network is not currently under attack. If your network is under attack, then you want to find out who is behind the attack and how they attacked.
Your Home page preference settings determine the time period for which Symantec Endpoint Protection Manager displays data. By default, the data on the Home page represents only the clients that connected in the past 12 hours. If you have many clients that are frequently offline, your best monitoring option is to go to the logs and reports. In the logs and reports, you can filter the data to include offline clients.
Even if you restrict some of the client log data that mobile clients upload, you can check the following displays.
