Symantec Announces Endpoint Protection

Symantec touts the release of Symantec Endpoint Protection 11.0 and Symantec Network Access Control 11.0

LAS VEGAS -- Symantec Corp. (Nasdaq: SYMC) today announced a significant step in its Security 2.0 vision with the introduction of Symantec Endpoint Protection 11.0 and Symantec Network Access Control 11.0 (codenamed Project Hamlet). Symantec Endpoint Protection - the most significant update to Symantec's market-leading enterprise antivirus product in years - combines Symantec AntiVirus with advanced threat prevention in a single agent delivering unmatched defense against malware for laptops, desktops and servers. Symantec Endpoint Protection is available today in public beta at www.symantec.com/endpointsecurity.

In order to protect customers from both today's threats and tomorrow's emerging threats, Symantec Endpoint Protection includes proactive technologies that automatically analyze application behaviors and network communications to detect and actively block attacks. Customers are provided integrated antivirus, antispyware, firewall, host- and network-based intrusion prevention solutions (IPS), and application and device control into a single solution that is easy to install and easy to manage.

Symantec Endpoint Protection reduces administrative costs associated with managing multiple endpoint security products by bringing together award-winning technology from Symantec, Sygate, Whole Security and Veritas. This provides operational efficiencies and gives customers a best-of-breed, yet fully integrated solution that works across platforms and is supported by a single vendor. It is also backed by Symantec's Global Intelligence Network with eight Symantec Security Response Centers, four Symantec Security Operations Centers, 120 million systems and more than 40,000 sensors deployed in 180 countries.

"Symantec Endpoint Protection makes it easier for businesses to adopt a more effective multi-layered security solution and extends the power of antivirus to address today's evolving threat landscape," said Tom Kendra, group president, Security and Data Management, Symantec. "It resets the bar for endpoint security, reducing overhead, time and costs so that customers can efficiently manage security and gain confidence that corporate assets and business are protected."
