Symantec Introduces New Age of Advanced Threat Protection

Symantec Advanced Threat Protection helps businesses to uncover, prioritize, and quickly and efficiently restore malicious attacks to all their control points.

H Symantec Corp. η μεγαλύτερη παγκοσμίως εταιρεία ασφάλειας στονκυβερνοχώρο1, ανακοινώνει το Symantec Advanced Threat Protection (ATP), την πρώτη λύση που ανιχνεύει και αποκαθιστά προηγμένες απειλές σε όλα τα σημεία ελέγχου, από μία κεντρική διαχείρισης, με ένα μόνο κλικ και χωρίς να χρειάζεται εγκατάσταση νέων agents στα τερματικά.Symantec ATP

Σύνθετες απειλές, όπως ransomware, remote access trojans, advanced persistent threats (APTs) και επιθέσεις day, βρίσκονται σε έξαρση και οι ειδικοί στην ασφάλεια συστημάτων δεν μπορούν πλέον να βασίζονται μονάχα στη χρήση μεμονωμένων προϊόντων προστασίας σε κάθε σημείο ελέγχου για την αποτροπή τους.

Revealing a threat to a terminal, network, and e-mail gateway is a manual and extremely time-consuming process, which gives a significant advantage to the attackers.

Symantec ATP associates suspicious activity at all checkpoints and prioritizes events that pose the greatest risk to a business or organization. Once a critical threat has been identified, it can now be quickly identified and therefore blocked in the other similar cases.

Symantec ATP gives customers the ability to:

• Disclose the full range of threats from APTs to zero-day attacks on terminals, the network and e-mail, with combined detection of hubs and environmental search.
• Prioritize threats that genuinely merit attention and relate them to the threat intelligence among all local control points, with everything Symantec continuously records globally through mass telemetry.
• Quickly restore threats by blocking terminals and blocking new incidents at all points and controlling a click from a single console.
• Enhance their existing investments in Symantec Endpoint Security and Email Security.cloud, without the need for new endpoint agents.

"Data security professionals are constantly on the alert trying to monitor and prevent the next cyberattack," said Michael A. Brown, president and CEO of Symantec. “With Symantec Advanced Threat Protection, we're taking the market one step further, giving customers a complete view of their entire business from a single console. Now they can filter them and quickly discover and remediate an attack."

Noise reduction for Symantec ATP users can be achieved in a number of ways. Combining Symantec Global Threat Intelligence with locally collected customer data allows businesses to get a clearer picture of which threats pose the greatest risk within their infrastructure. In addition, Symantec ATP includes Symantec CynicTM, a new cloud-based sandboxing testing and filtering environment that detects and prioritizes today's most advanced threats. It also includes SynapseTM, with correlation and control technologies, which collects suspicious activity in terminals, network and e-mail, giving priority to the threats that pose the greatest risk to the organization.

"Our new Synapse and Cynic technologies work together to provide up to 30% more improved detection compared to other of the market," said Balaji Yelamanchili, executive vice president and general manager of the Enterprise Security Business, Symantec. “Until now, security professionals have had to manually check whether a suspicious file has been effectively blocked. With our new technologies integrated into SymantecATP, we do all the hard work for customers, significantly reducing search and recovery time.”

"An average business uses 75 different security products," added Yelamanchili. "Overloading creates opportunities for attackers as it slows down detection. Symantec ATP allows security professionals, with one click, to restore all three control points. "

Symantec ATP strengthens existing SymantecTM Endpoint Protection and Email Security.cloud installations without requiring new endpoint agents. This allows customers to create a new installation of Symantec ATP in less than an hour and start searching for attacks in just a few minutes. The product can also extract its rich intelligence to third-party security incident event managers (SIEMs). As Symantec ATP is evolving, the company plans to open it to third-party technology partners, including firewalls and other security products, allowing customers to enhance the value of their existing investments.

• Ensuring a large pan-European stock market is a big bet and 2014 has added a huge amount of complexity to securing this data. The facts show that a mere technical problem is enough to shake the markets and cause financial, legal and damage to corporate reputation. Euronext turned to Symantec, the global market leader, to secure its infrastructure and agreed to test an early version of Symantec Advanced Threat Protection. It has already been revealed that it has better oversight at what is happening at Euronext terminals, and everything is now done in a simpler, faster and more efficient way. As a result, Euronext has set priorities and significantly reduces the number of possible security incidents, "said Marc Green, Head of Threat and Vulnerability Management at Euronext.

Επιπλέον, οι δυνατότητες αυτές δεν θα πρέπει να αξιολογηθούν μεμονωμένα. Θα πρέπει να ενοποιηθούν σε συνδυασμό με έξυπνο τρόπο ως ένα ολοκληρωμένο, εύκολα προσαρμόσιμο σύστημα, που μπορεί να αποτελέσει μια ολοκληρωμένη διαδικασία προστασίας από προηγμένες απειλές».

• Καθώς τα ζητήματα της ασφάλειας των επιχειρήσεων γίνονται όλο και πιο σύνθετα, σε απάντηση σε ένα τόσο δυναμικό τοπίο απειλών, οι υπεύθυνοι ασφάλειας απαιτούν μια που να ενσωματώνει και να διαχειρίζεται όλες τις ενέργειες που σχετίζονται με την ασφάλειά τους. Ομοίως, για την αντιμετώπιση της έλλειψης δεξιοτήτων που απαιτούνται, χρειάζονται ένα μηχανισμό που να αυτοματοποιεί τις λειτουργίες που αφορούν στην ασφάλεια καθώς και να εντοπίζει και να αποκαθιστά γρήγορα τις απειλές», δήλωσε ο Duncan Brown, Research Director, European Security Practice, της IDC.
