Driving the high levels of protection and compliance you need.

Mitigate the risks introduced by virtualization and achieve even greater protection than you thought possible in a purely physical environment. Whether you are trying to prevent unauthorized access, maintaining isolation and separation of systems, discovering and monitoring sensitive data, or consolidating log monitoring across virtual and physical infrastructure, with Symantec you can confidently accelerate your virtualization initiatives to include even the most critical of applications and services.
Symantec’s portfolio of VMware–integrated software offers proven effectiveness, maximum performance, and centralized workflow automations across both physical and virtual platforms. Unlike many solutions that offer limited security effectiveness and scope, Symantec innovations offer complete protection, unparalleled performance, and intelligent integrations for customers needing to seamlessly extend security and compliance strategies to their virtual domain.

Recommended solutions for virtualization security and compliance:

Critical System Protection

Integrates vSphere protection and hardening policies to monitor and prevent configuration file tampering, limit inbound/outbound communications and access, stop unauthorized services from running and prevent zero day attacks against un-patched or vulnerable systems.

Control Compliance Suite

Reduces compliance deficiencies across converged infrastructure and integrates vSphere hardening policies that allow for scheduled automated scans to report on vSphere platform state as well as perform vulnerability scans of critical vSphere assets.

Data Loss Prevention

For orchestrated prevention of data loss across dynamic workloads, Data Loss Prevention integrates with vShield to discover sensitive data residing in virtual datacenters and automatically quarantine virtual machines that violate data security policies.

Managed Security Services

Off-premise, real-time virtual threat telemetry to mitigate risk, Symantec Managed Security Services utilize an integrated vShield collector to provide new threat-based context to advancing virtual infrastructures combined with 7x24 GIAC-certified Security Analyst expertise to assist with incident remediation.

Endpoint Protection

Proactive protection tailored for high density environments, Symantec Endpoint Solutions plan to leverage vShield Endpoint with its endpoint security offerings to offload critical security analysis from protected virtual machines to a dedicated security virtual appliance resulting in optimized scan performance, reduced resource utilization, and increased management visibility.

Web Gateway

Proactive virtual fabric protection against targeted or mutating web-borne threats, Web Gateway integrates vShield App to identify endpoint infections and bot activity allowing automation of quarantine and other mitigation actions.
