Symantec unveils new endpoint security software

Posted on 1-Nov-2016 20:38 | Filed under: News

Symantec Corp. has announced Symantec Endpoint Protection 14, the next evolution in endpoint technology, powered by artificial intelligence on the endpoint and in the cloud. Symantec Endpoint Protection 14 puts together essential endpoint technologies with advanced machine learning and memory exploit mitigation in a single agent, delivering a multi-layered solution that the company says is able to stop advanced threats and respond at the endpoint regardless of how the attack is launched.


Symantec Endpoint Protection delivers powerful protection in a lightweight package, with 70 percent reduced footprint over the previous generation through new advanced cloud lookup capabilities.


Powered by combined threat intelligence capabilities made possible 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.


“Symantec Endpoint Protection 14 is a major leap forward in endpoint protection, delivering the latest innovations in endpoint security on a single platform and from a security company you can trust,” said Mike Fey, president and chief operating officer at Symantec. “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 defense strategy that enterprises require to combat today’s advanced threats.”


The pace and sophistication of new threats facing organizations is daunting. In 2015, Symantec reported more than 430 million new pieces of malware and expects that figure will grow this year. To defend against these advanced threats, Symantec provides customers a single agent and management capabilities that addresses threats in entirely new ways:


  • Advanced machine learning powered by Symantec’s Global Intelligence Network provides a depth of knowledge no one else can claim.
  • Integration with existing infrastructure through published APIs enables seamless management of thousands of endpoints in multiple locations and across diverse operating systems and platforms.
  • Access to Symantec’s intelligent threat cloud technology reduces daily definition file updates by 70 percent, significantly reducing bandwidth use across the company network.
  • Integration with Symantec Advanced Threat Protection solution to detect and respond to stealthy threats at the endpoint using a single agent.
  • Simultaneous protection of customer endpoints and their networks with seamless integration of Symantec Endpoint Protection and Blue Coat Secure Web Gateway.
