Symantec unveils AI endpoint security solution
In 2015, Symantec reported more than 430 million new pieces of malware and expects that figure will grow this year
Symantec revealed its Symantec Endpoint Protection 14, which is powered by artificial intelligence on the endpoint and in the cloud.
Symantec Endpoint Protection 14 fuses essential endpoint technologies with advanced machine learning and memory exploit mitigation in a single agent, delivering a multi-layered solution able to stop advanced threats and respond at the endpoint regardless of how the attack is launched.
The solution delivers powerful protection in a lightweight package, building on 99.9% efficacy, low false positives and a 70% reduced footprint over the previous generation through new advanced cloud lookup capabilities.
Mike Fey, president and chief operating officer at Symantec, said: "Multi-layered protection, enabled by artificial intelligence, backed by the world's largest and most powerful threat intelligence force, and powered by the cloud, this is literally the smartest choice in endpoint technologies. Symantec Endpoint Protection 14 is an essential element of an integrated cyber defence strategy that enterprises require to combat today's advanced threats."
Powered by combined threat intelligence capabilities by integrating Symantec and Blue Coat's security telemetry, Symantec now protects 175 million consumer and enterprise endpoints, 163 million email users, 80 million web proxy users, and processes nearly eight billion security requests across these products every day.
