How Can I Make All My Security Tools—Network, Endpoint, Cloud—Work Well Together?

Choose a network security service that integrates with other control points.

Your incident response and security ops teams are stressed by constant alerts and struggle to optimize their existing security tools. The Symantec cloud network security service integrates with endpoint protection, cloud applications, and other controls to quickly identify and respond to threats. Use it to ensure your network, endpoint, and cloud security tools are orchestrated for a safer, streamlined response.

  • Symantec Integrated Cyber Defense Platform—Ensure faster, coordinated response and remediation with integrations across control points and attack vectors. For example, threats identified on an endpoint in location A are blacklisted on a network device in location B, while remediation steps are automatically started to isolate and remediate the threat.
  • Symantec Endpoint Protection (SEP)—Simply configure SEP agents, directing internet traffic to Symantec Web Security Service.  Thanks to integration, no additional agent is required, and you get strong security extending from your endpoints to your network.

Proxy-based Secure Web Gateway

A Next-Generation Firewall alone could leave you vulnerable.

The introduction of the Next-Generation Firewall (NGFW) has led many organizations to cut operational expenditures in ways that potentially undermine their security posture. A secure web gateway is a critical complement to your NGFW.
