Ability to create groups or containers in Shared Reports so that shared team/group reports can be grouped together.
new idea 22 Nov 2017
It would be nice to be able to block any file using the file's hash. This is currently only possible for executables. With the growing trend of using malicious word documents, dll's, and other files - it seems like a security NECESSITY to be able to block files by hash regardless of the file type.
updated idea 21 Nov 2017
Right now the randomization of a scheduled scan's start time and duration is one setting. There is no choice to only randomize the scheduled scan's start time. We would like have one option for turning on randamization for the start time and one option for turning on randamization for the duration of the scan. Also, it would be nice to be able to specify a time range where the randamized ...

I am using Symantec Mail Security for Mucrosoft Exchange 7.5 and I get a report every week on what has been quarantined or blocked by the premium antispam. It says that a .pdf was blocked and I am just assuming that it didn't get to the intended recipient. I was wondering how I would be able to find that file so I can release it. I looked in quarantine and in the event logs but I cant find ...

WSS Report Custom Date filter to include time option. Currently, the Report Custom Date filter only allows you to specify a date to use,  this should be enhanced toa time option (hour & minutes) We had an issue where we & Symantec Support could not obtain 'Full Log Details' as evidence of the issue due to the number of entries returning exceeding 1000000

Hi, at the moment the content policy option "Disable clickable URLs in Messages" can only be used as an action and it is not possible use it as a condition. ​It would be a great feature to use it also as a condition. e.g. if SMG disables a URL in a Message -> modify the subject line  Thanks
new idea 16 Nov 2017
RFC 2818 requires the use of SUbject alternative names for certificates.  The system should allow an administrator to create a CSR in the system that includes this field.  The current version of the product 10.6.3 does not have this functionality.  The work around using openssl is silly.  In order to maintain security standards Symantec should be adhering to the security ...

Network administrators in higher education have one of the most challenging jobs around.

The network ‘dial-tone’ is taken for granted with instant access, high ...

サイバーセキュリティ上の課題は、容易に解決できるものではありません。ひとえに、あまりに複雑で規模も大きいからです。追いつ追われつの果てしないセキュリティ競争を背景に、過去 5 年から 10 年の間だけでも 100 億ドル台を軽く超える資金が費やされ、1,000 社以上の技術系スタートアップが誕生しました。ベンチャーキャピタル資金が次々とつぎ込まれ、予防、検出、インシデント対応、そして SecOps におけるイノベーションが絶えず出現しています。 シマンテックのようなサイバーセキュリティプラットフォーム企業も、イノベーションは展開しています。しかし、各社が集まった広大で創造的なコミュニティが、一丸となってサイバー犯罪に立ち向かうことにも、大きい意義があります。 こうしたエコシステム全体の協力態勢と創造性を強化するために、シマンテックは TIPP(Technology ...

This is a little script package I put together to get a list of clients to point to the right SAV service to be managed. We were seeing a large amount of clients that were shown as being managed by the server but were not taking updates. The FixVirusDef script is pretty simple. It copies the PKI root certs and the GRC.dat files to the appropriate location on the client from the VPHOME ...
