Today, Symantec released Symantec Endpoint Protection 12.1.5, which includes significant feature enhancements in terms of performance and management.
Last year, Symantec saw a 91% increase in targeted attack campaigns, which lasted an average of three times longer than in 2012. For those in the security industry, it should come as no surprise that these sophisticated threats are not stopped by antivirus alone. Protection requires leveraging the collective wisdom of the world’s largest Global Intelligence Network (GIN), with data from hundreds of millions of users and sensors across Symantec’s network to stay ahead of today’s mutating malware.
Derived from GIN and stronger than ever, the unique Insight™ technology in Symantec Endpoint Protection 12.1 blocks new and mutating threats and enables faster scan times by accurately identifying file reputations and scanning only at-risk files. Meanwhile, SONAR™ stops zero-day threats by monitoring file behavior in real-time. Powered by these intelligent security technologies, Symantec Endpoint Protection provides 5 layers of protection, including not only strong antivirus but also Network Threat Protection with IPS and Firewall to protect your business against targeted attacks and advanced persistent threats.
