Control Compliance Suite

Organizations increasingly use public cloud services to manage large segments of their enterprise technology infrastructures. Until now, IT Departments have been limited in their ability to manage risk and compliance in the cloud. The only options available were to use the insufficient controls provided by the cloud vendor or to limit the data types hosted in cloud infrastructure.

Organizations can now manage risk and compliance for systems in their enterprise data center as well as in the public cloud in a single admin facility and apply standard policies and controls to both their cloud as well as on-premise technology systems.
This offering is Symantec's first product to support the Bring Your Own License (BYOL) model for managing technology assets in the public cloud, supporting CCS servers running either in the cloud or on premise.
