Symantec Launches Network Security Scheme

Symantec on Tuesday unveiled its latest concept for weaving security through an IT network to better improve business processes.

Touted as "more than just an antivirus product or firewall," Symantec's Information Integrity initiative represents "a fundamentally new way for businesses to think about information availability and security," said Randy Cochran, vice president of the Americas for Symantec, Cupertino, Calif.

The vendor launched the initiative Tuesday at events in New York, San Francisco, London and Munich, Germany. In New York, Symantec CEO John Thompson was scheduled to speak on "the importance of balancing security risk with business opportunity" and "how Symantec's services and products help organizations analyze risk and plan for growth while protecting their assets and brand," according to Symantec.

Symantec rolled out two new products to support its vision.

First, version 6.1 of Symantec's Enterprise Security Manager policy compliance solution promises to provide businesses with security-related compliance reporting features and preconfigured assessment templates for Sarbanes-Oxley and Gramm-Leach-Bliley requirements, said Cochran.
