Symantec eyes to simplify cloud migration with Management Center 2.0

The solution streamlines deployment, management and monitoring for cloud-based and hybrid security environments; adds AWS support and licensing options for virtual appliances.

Symantec Corp. announced enhancements to Symantec Management Center. The centralized solution manages the network portfolio inside of the Symantec Integrated Cyber Defense Platform, allowing customers to migrate to the cloud or a hybrid network security solution, simplifying the security challenges inherent in cloud generation transitions.

In order to maximize the value of Symantec Network Protection Solutions, including Symantec’s ProxySG, customers must be able to quickly roll out, configure, monitor, manage and back up their deployments as they migrate from on-premises solutions to the cloud.

Symantec Management Center is a unified management platform that provides centralized visibility and control for Symantec network security products, to help reduce operational costs and improve return on investment.

Management Center 2.0 features include: AWS Support that enables deployment to hosted virtual machines and allows customers to transition to cloud-based Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) solutions; and Virtual Appliance Licensing options that support up to 1,000 devices and allow virtualized infrastructure to scale as an organization’s business grows.

“Flexible and scalable deployment of Management Center is an effective way to help maximize the benefits of network security solutions including Symantec Secure Web Gateway,” said Wassim Tawbi, vice president of product management, Symantec. “Centralized management and reporting can streamline operational needs and improve visibility and effectiveness for customers as they evolve toward a cloud generation infrastructure.”

Symantec Management Center 2.0 is now available globally.
