MOUNTAIN VIEW, CA: With an aim to help security professionals in their work, Symantec, provider of cyber security, has unveiled Symantec Advanced Threat Protection (ATP).

Developed to eradicate manual and time-consuming threat detecting process, which give attackers a chance to attack, Symantec has developed ATP. It is a solution that can detect and correct advanced threat across control points, from a single console with just a click, without any deployment of new agents. It detects serious issues like, ransomware, remote access Trojans, advanced persistent threats (APTs) and zero day attacks.

“Security professionals are constantly on their toes trying to monitor and prevent the next cyber-attack. 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. Now they can filter out the noise and quickly discover and remediate an attack,” says Michael A. Brown, President and CEO of Symantec.

With this new solution, users can enjoy the benefits of prioritizing things by correlating the threat intelligence across local control points with all that Symantec sees via its massive telemetry; remediate the threats fast through control of endpoints and blocking new instances across control points; and can leverage existing investments in Symantec Endpoint Security and Email Security cloud.

Apart from all these, Symantec ATP consists of Symantec Cynic to ascertain and prioritize serious threats and Synapse to prioritize those networks and emails that are of greatest risk for the organization. “Our new Synapse and Cynic technologies work together to provide up to 30 percent better detection than existing products out there,” concludes Balaji Yelamanchili, Executive VP and GM of Enterprise Security Business, Symantec.
