3 Ways Symantec Endpoint Protection 14 Takes Security to the Next Level

Network security concerns continue to grow as zero-day threats become more commonplace. To make matters worse, while IT departments struggle to keep up with security changes, they’re losing productivity from putting out fires and experiencing higher costs to address their security needs. Symantec Endpoint Protection (SEP) provides superior protection, high performance, and an orchestrated response to take endpoint security to the next level for businesses and provide resource relief to IT managers. Read on to learn how.

1. Next-Gen Technologies

Endpoint protection 14 is made up of next-gen technologies that provide superior protection against unknown and zero-day threats. One next-gen technology of note is the advanced machine learning that protects against new, unknown, and evolving threats utilizing the largest civilian global threat intelligence network. Additionally, SEP provides memory exploit mitigation to protect popular applications and operating systems from zero-day attacks in real-time.

2. Efficient & Lightweight

SEP’s Intelligent Threat Cloud utilizes patented real-time cloud lookup for all scanned files and provides faster scan times. Advanced cloud lookup techniques like batched queries, pipelining, and trust propagation keep SEP from having to download all signature definitions to the endpoint. The significantly reduced file size of virus definitions decrease bandwidth usage and boost performance. Additionally, SEP’s single lightweight agent allows for a reduced number of managed agents on endpoints which in turn leads to increased performance and lower total cost of ownership (TCO).

3. Integration & Automation

SEP’s new programmable REST APIs allow for easy integrations with existing security infrastructure. Integrating endpoint protection with other security products allows for orchestrated responses such as quarantining infected endpoints, whitelisting known safe applications, and blacklisting known unsafe applications to block threats. The integration capabilities and single management console also allow IT departments to setup enhanced automation of processes to save time and resources.

SEP 14 allows IT professionals to protect endpoints across the entire attack chain with no single point of failure. Managed on a single console and utilizing advanced threat protection technologies, SEP 14 provides superior protection from unknown and zero-day threats.
