Symantec has launched a new set of enterprise security products with the Symantec Endpoint Protection 11.0 and Symantec Network Access Control 11.0 (codenamed Project Hamlet).

Symantec Endpoint Protection combines Symantec antivirus with advanced threat prevention, including antispyware, firewall, host and network based intrusion prevention solutions (IPS) and application and device control in a single agent.

By combining these technologies in one solution, Symantec claims the Endpoint Protection system enables enterprises to reduce administrative costs and increase operational efficiencies with a fully integrated solution that works across platforms and is supported by a single vendor. A public beta of the product has been made available through the Symantec website.

"Symantec Endpoint Protection makes it easier for businesses to adopt a more effective multi-layered security solution and extends the power of antivirus to address today's evolving threat landscape," said Tom Kendra (pictured), group president, of Symantec's security and data management division.

The new version of the NAC product, Symantec Network Access Control 11.0 is an optional module tightly integrated with Symantec Endpoint Protection to help customers discover and evaluate the status of endpoints, provision the appropriate network access and provide remediation capabilities to ensure security policies and standards are met. According to Symantec, both new products will be made available worldwide in September.
