Threat Protection: Advanced Malware Detection
Block threats and phishing attempts
While email is the first vector of attacks, those messages often contain links to malware hosted online; malware can even be served by legitimate websites that have been compromised. URL filtering alone does not provide adequate protection. More often than not, employees will use their company-owned devices to access personal email - opening another uncontrolled attack surface.
Symantec Web Security.cloud prevents malware downloaded from the Internet, whatever the method, from infecting your network. The prevention and detection platforms includes multiple analysis engines that scan all Web requests in real time. A combination of Symantec’s Global Intelligence and the Skeptic heuristic analysis platform detects emerging and zero day threats to ensure all Web content (including PDFs and media files) is free from malicious code before it is delivered to users.
- Skeptic blocks even the most sophisticated Web attacks, even if they have never been seen before.
- Consistent policy and security for all users regardless of location.
- Cloud-based scanning provides real-time analysis and prevention.
