Symantec introduces advanced threat protection

Symantec Corp. introduced Symantec Advanced Threat Protection (ATP), the first solution that can detect and remediate advanced threats across control points, from a single console, and with no new endpoint agents to deploy.

Symantec Corp. introduced the Symantec Advanced Threat ProtectionSymantec (ATP), the first solution that can detect and remediate advanced threats across control points, from a single console, and with no new endpoint agents to deploy.
 
Advanced threats, such as ransomware, remote access trojans, advanced persistent threats (APTs) and zero day attacks, are said to be 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 often done manually, 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 contained and new instances can be blocked.
  
“Security professionals are constantly on their toes trying to monitor and prevent the next cyber-attack,” said Michael A. Brown, president and CEO of 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.”
 
Symantec ATP also includes SymantecCynic, a new cloud-based sandboxing and payload detonation service to discover and prioritize advanced threats. It similarly includes Synapse, a cross-control point correlation capability that collects suspicious activity across endpoints, networks and email to prioritize those that are of greatest risk to the organization.
 
The product can also export its intelligence into third party security incident event managers (SIEMs). As Symantec ATP evolves, the company plans to open it up to third party technology partners, including firewall and other security product vendors, allowing customers to enhance the value of their existing investments.
