Symantec O₃

Symantec O3 is a unique cloud security platform that provides single sign-on and enforces access control policies across web applications. Symantec O3 helps enterprises migrate to Software as a Service (SaaS) applications while ensuring that proper risk management and compliance measures are in place to protect enterprise data and follow regulations.

In short, O3 enables enterprise IT to embrace the cloud while retaining visibility and control – simplifying the use of cloud applications for both enterprise IT staff and for users.
