Last week, we shared details of how the HeartBleed OpenSSL vulneratbility affected our Email & Web Security products.

The newest feature in our Web Security.cloud product, the ability to analyze and control data over HTTPS communications, was found to be vulnerable and was taken offline immediately on April 9th 2014.  No other features, functionality or services were impacted.

I'm happy to announce that over the past weekend, we completed the work necessary to be able to restore this functionality.  With visibility into both unencrypted HTTP and encrypted HTTPS traffic, Symantec Web Security.cloud can secure users from malware, enforce web usage policy and prevent sensitive and confidential data from leaving the network.

As a reminder, the following products and services are NOT at risk and...

By now you should be well aware of the vulnerability CVE-2014-0160, nicknamed HeartBleed, that exists in a number of versions of OpenSSL - an extremely popular open source cryptographic library.

Yesterday, we provided some guidance on steps businesses and consumers should take in light of this vulnerability.

We have also made it very simple to inspect and verify many aspects of SSL certificate security, including whether a server is still vulnerable to the HeartBleed attack.

We are extremely sensitive to the anxiety felt by customers who rely on our software and services as a core part of their work and personal lives.  So today, I want to give you an...

Hi!
 
My last post back in October 2011 introduced the beta program for a new application for our messaging security customers.
I'm delighted to announce that we achieved our Generally Available (GA) milestone yesterday on March 19th meaning that the Symantec Email Submission Client is now available for all of our customers to download and install.  This is my first "1.0" product release so I'm particularly excited to see this product ship :)
 
Did I mention that this is provided at no extra charge?  Yup, free.
 
We had some excellent beta participants in this cycle, ranging from large enterprise customers to small businesses and we got some fantastic real world feedback which helped us ship an even better product than we originally scoped.
 
So, what is SESC?

One of the great things about working in the Messaging & Web Security BU is the amount of cool new technology and functionality we work on.  Some times, this is behind the scenes on our backend systems and other times this is new functionality for existing products.

This time, however, I'm really excited to announce the beta program of a brand new application:

Symantec Email Submissions Client

This application allows you to automate the submission of missed spam (aka false negatives) to Symantec, directly from your end user mailboxes.

Symantec Email Submission Client takes advantage of the Exchange Web Services framework built into Microsoft Exchange Server to provide a submissions solution that:

  • Does NOT require any installation to you endpoint devices.
  • Does NOT require any updates to be managed/pushed to your endpoint devices. 
  • Does NOT require any complex end user training.
