Symantec launches Advanced Threat Protection


Symantec introduced Advanced Threat Protection, designed to detect and remediate advanced threats across control points.

Symantec said advanced threats, such as ransomware, remote access trojans, advanced persistent threats and zero day attacks, are on the rise.

Security professionals can no longer rely on using individual point products at each control point to stop them.

“We’re moving the industry forward with Symantec Advanced Threat Protection by giving customers a complete picture of their entire enterprise from a single console,” Symantec president and CEO Michael Brown said, adding that customers can now filter out the noise and quickly discover and remediate an attack.

Symantec ATP correlates suspicious activity across all control points and prioritizes the events that pose the most risk to an organization.

Once a critical threat is identified, it can now be quickly contained and new instances can be blocked.

With regard to the availability, Symantec said Advanced Threat Protection will be available by end of calendar year 2015.

Starting MSRP is $40 per user annually to secure one control point, $60 to secure two control points and $70 to secure three control points.

Earlier in October, Symantec launched Secure One, designed to help security-focused partners grow their businesses.

Symantec noted that the secure  one offers the ability to unlock higher earning potential through simplified competency and certification requirements, while including a Growth Accelerator Rebate.

The company added that the new offering will be included under the Secure One umbrella. Symantec Secure One is currently available globally.
