At Symantec Corporation, we needed to address internal audit concerns about potentially sensitive information stored on laptops and desktop PCs. To address this issue, we deployed our own drive encryption solution on a global scale. Results include successfully mitigating risk of data loss, approaching 95% user compliance rate companywide, streamlined audit process, encryption runs in the background so employees can stay productive, and integrated with Microsoft Active Directory for single sign-on efficiency and end user simplicity. Yes, here at Symantec we do “eat our own cooking,” and as a result we’ve enhanced both information security and compliance. To learn more about Symantec’s implementation of our in-house encryption solution, read this article.

It's no secret that disaster recovery is all too often an after-thought for most companies. Yet, when natural disasters like Hurricane Sandy happen, IT organizations have to reevaluate their practices and modernize backup. Further, as more critical business processes move towards automation, the spotlight is on IT resiliency for delivering the required uptime for systems and applications. The more accessible alternative for many IT organizations currently is to back up critical systems to tape and in turn, ship the tapes to a remote location. Not only is this practice obsolete, it’s also risky, inefficient, and costly. The solution is Symantec NetBackup which automates and accelerates disaster recovery practices, while improving service level agreements and reducing costs. This solution also essentially eliminates redundant data. To learn more, check out this link.

According to Symantec's 2011 Internet Security Threat Report, the sheer number of attacks has soared 81% since 2010, reaching 5.5 billion. Malware, in particular, is a major source of concern. Malware authors have shifted tactics, away from mass distribution of a single strain that hits millions of PCs, to a micro distribution model where far more unique variants are created. To combat this problem and help organizations cope with a constantly changing and ever-complex threat landscape, Symantec will release Endpoint Protection 12.1.2 later this year. This solution is built on an eco-system of security technologies, including new behavioral and reputation-based protection. To learn more about Symantec’s Endpoint Protection 12.1.2, check out this article.
