Symantec launches endpoint security for the cloud
Vendor delivers deception, mobile threat defence and EDR in a single endpoint security agent architecture
Cyber security vendor Symantec, has launched an advanced and fully-featured endpoint solution that brings together deception technology, mobile threat defence, endpoint detection and response (EDR), hardening and intensive protection through advanced machine learning.
Built on the company's Symantec Endpoint Protection (SEP) platform, it is the first solution to deliver these capabilities in a single agent, meeting the challenges of the cloud generation by helping to simplify and optimise their environments, lower costs, and improve security.
Mike Fey, Symantec president and COO, said: "Our new endpoint solution is exactly what our customers have been asking for - best of breed capabilities, integrated into a single agent, to help them streamline, lower costs and effectively combat advanced threats, malware and ransomware."
Fey added that more importantly, these technologies are not simply integrated - they lead going toe-to-toe against their standalone counterparts in the industry. "We call it endpoint security for the cloud generation and we are very proud to offer this level of advancement to our customers, completing another important milestone in our endpoint security strategy," he said.
As the business landscape evolves with the adoption of cloud computing and mobile technology, enterprises are working harder to protect employees across a diverse set of devices, while at the same time securing against new cyber threats.
Endpoint security for the cloud generation takes a comprehensive, platform-based approach to the modern threat environment, delivering unique innovations advancing the cause of endpoint security.
