SYMANTEC SOLUTIONS BOOTHS

Partner Expo Hall - Octavius Ballroom, Caesars Palace Convention Center
To gain even more insight into current and upcoming Symantec solutions, be sure to stop by the booth in the center of the Expo Hall. Visit with Symantec experts, representing the following solutions and services:

MSS Advanced Threat Protection (ATP)

Modern day attackers are launching increasingly more sophisticated cyber-attacks that leverage unknown variants of malware to evade traditional signature-based security products. Despite having made significant investments in various protection technologies, security leaders are left wondering whether their company has been attacked and how far the threats have spread. The tradition approach of monitoring security at the network is no longer enough. Since endpoints often provide the initial “foothold” from which an intruder launches their attack, detecting today's advanced targeted attacks requires an integrated, multi-layered approach that correlates information from network security and endpoint protection devices. MSS Advanced Threat Protection (ATP) minimizes the potential business impact of evolving, advanced targeted attacks by reducing the time it takes to detect, prioritize and respond to security incidents. MSS-ATP provides bi-directional integration between endpoint security and network security vendors enabling users to rapidly and effectively contain, investigate and remediate unknown and zero day attacks.

Norton Zone, powered by Symantec

The primary concern when using file sharing in a business environment is the security of company files. Come see the various ways, from patented Symantec Multiblind™ Key Encryption technology to app wrapping, that Norton Zone helps protect shared files. Further, adoption of a file sharing service requires not only that it be secure and help keep company files secure but that it also be easy to use and to administer. Come to the Norton Zone booth to see firsthand how easy Norton Zone is to use so your users will be willing to use it. You can also learn how easy it is to administer so users and policies can be managed efficiently. At the booth you can engage directly with Zone and discuss with product managers.
