The threats plaguing today's organisations have become more sophisticated and widespread. Using traditional signature-based security is not enough; they are often too slow to stop these threats. Organisations need a reputation and behavioural-based solution to tackle this tide of malware.
Symantec Insight™ and SONAR offer an intelligent security approach that can detect malware as soon as it appears. Powering Symantec™ Endpoint Protection 12, they create the fastest and the most effective endpoint protection security solution1 built for both physical and virtual environments to stop malware from compromising your network.
As traditional security perimeters break down with changes in information technology (IT) infrastructure, such as the greater use of mobile devices, cloud computing, and virtualisation platforms, organisations have become more susceptible to attacks. Cyber criminals are making use of this vulnerability to generate and disseminate more malware. Traditional signature-based security solutions have become less effective in these environments.
This tide of deadly malware is made up of several elements:
Signature-based antivirus software is only effective against 30 to 50 percent of current security threats4. However, attackers are counteracting this by modifying malware so that they cannot be matched to any signatures. As existing solutions cannot detect these modified malware signatures, organisations require advanced detection.
What organisations need is an intelligent security solution that can rate the context, age, and prevalence of files. The solution should also be able to proactively monitor the behaviours of applications and:
Symantec offers an approach that not only meets the requirements of a good intelligent security solution, but also does so quickly without impacting the system's performance.
Symantec Insight™ rates files according to their age, frequency, and location to expose malicious threats that could be missed. It leverages the Symantec™ Global Intelligence Network, which collects data from over 210 million machines worldwide. Insight can quickly detect malware as soon as it's created. SONAR proactively detects new threats based entirely on their behaviour, and is able to identify and stop zero-day attacks. Together, they provide the most effective protection1 against new attacks, reducing false positives and improving system performance.
