Symantec Introduces New Era of Advanced Threat Protection
Symantec Corp, the global leader in cyber security, today introduced Symantec Advanced Threat Protection (ATP), the first solution that can detect and remediate advanced threats across control points, from a single console with just a click, all with no new endpoint agents to deploy.
Advanced threats, such as ransomware, remote access trojans, advanced persistent threats (APTs) and zero day attacks, are on the rise and security professionals can no longer rely on using individual point products at each control point to stop them. The process of uncovering threat data across endpoint, network and email gateways is manual and time-consuming, which gives attackers an edge. Symantec ATP correlates suspicious activity across all control points and prioritizes the events that pose the most risk to an organization. Once a critical threat is identified, it can now be quickly contained and new instances can be blocked.
Symantec ATP allows customers to:
· Uncover a full range of threats from APTs to zero day attacks across endpoint, network and email, with cross-control point detection and environmental search.
· Prioritize what matters most by correlating the threat intelligence from across local control points with all that Symantec sees globally through its massive telemetry.
· Remediate the threats fast through containment of endpoints and blocking new instances across control points, with one click, from a single console.
· Leverage existing investments in Symantec Endpoint Security and Email Security.cloud, without deploying any new endpoint agents.
“Security professionals are constantly on their toes trying to monitor and prevent the next cyber-attack,” said Michael A. Brown, president and CEO, Symantec. “We’re moving the industry forward with Symantec Advanced Threat Protection by giving customers a complete picture of their entire enterprise from a single console. Now they can filter out the noise and quickly discover and remediate an attack.”
