Organizations struggle to keep up with the size and complexity of today’s networks. Symantec is designed to address these challenges with a layered security approach at the endpoint. It includes firewall, Intrusion Prevention System (IPS) and advanced protection technologies to block rapidly-mutating malware and enable faster scan times. Application control and external media control provide extra security, giving powerful protection at the endpoint, without compromising performance.
Symantec offers five layers of protection including:
Network: analyzes incoming data and blocks threats before they hit endpoints and includes rules-based firewall and browser protection.
File: signature-based antivirus and advanced file heuristics find and eradicate malware to protect against viruses, worms, Trojans, spyware, bots, adware, and rootkits.
Reputation: Insight technology correlates billions of linkages between users, files, websites to detect mutating threats, and determine if a file is good or bad.
Behavior: SONAR technology leverages artificial intelligence to provide zero-day protection and executes in real-time.
Repair: Power Eraser scans infected endpoints and locates persistent threats. Remote support enables an administrator to remedy the infection remotely from the Symantec Endpoint Protection management console.
This benefits companies looking to protect and manage data with granular policy control by supporting remote deployment and client management to keep remote endpoints up-to-date. Symantec also reduces network overhead and decreases the time it takes to get updates. Endpoint security is optimized for virtual environments, providing end-to-end security visibility.
