Symantec has recently announced addition to its endpoint security portfolio with Symantec Endpoint Security (SES), which provides protection, detection and response in a single solution. The solution also adds to new attack surface reduction, threat hunting, and breach assessment and prevention capabilities.
The solution has been devised to safeguard organizations from modern and sophisticated attacks as security teams need simple, comprehensive and flexible solutions.
- SES finds and stops attack with analytics honed by Symantec’s world-renowned security experts. Customers can deploy and manage SES via the cloud or on-premises, or a hybrid of both, for all operating systems including mobile devices, with single agent installation.
- Enterprise customers with in-house investigation resources can opt for the brand new Threat Hunting Center add-on, which automates threat hunting across all security devices present in an organization’s Security Operations Center (SOC), enabling rapid response across billions of events.
- Threat Hunting Center customers will experience prioritized key alerts, reduced false positives, and faster investigations and incident remediation. The Threat Hunting Center integrates threat intelligence from a variety of sources and will provide retrospective analysis and proactive searches for unknown Indicators of Compromise (IOC’s) in the environment to pinpoint threats and in-process attacks that might not otherwise have been detected.
“The Symantec platform now offers tremendous breadth and depth, with a new level of simplification that many security teams will be surprised to see,” said Dave Gruber, Enterprise Strategy Group.
“Leveraging a single agent, the new Symantec Endpoint Security platform brings this vision to life, while adding compelling new breach assessment and prevention capabilities, support for in-house threat hunting activities with analytics and managed threat hunting services where organizations lack resources or skills.”
“Symantec Endpoint Security will stop emerging threats from impacting the Williams business,” said Graeme Hackland, CIO, Williams. “We’re excited about protection that stops all kinds of attacks, as well as the cloud-delivered innovation – such as the expanding use of artificial intelligence in security management with this Symantec solutionand will free up our time and resources.”
