Intelligent Protection for Emerging Threats

A powerful combination of detection technologies stops advanced threats and rapidly-mutating malware regardless of how they attack your endpoint–all in a high-performance, lightweight agent.

  • Advanced machine learning blocks new and emerging threats using trillions of samples of good and bad files in the Symantec Global Intelligence Network to power machine-learning results.
  • Behavior monitoring determines file risk by monitoring nearly1,400file behaviors while they execute in real time to block malicious files.
  • Memory exploit mitigation neutralizes zero-day exploits in popular software that has not been patched by the vendor using signature-less technology that works regardless of the law, bug, or vulnerability.
  • High-speed emulation technology detects malware hidden by polymorphic custom packers. A static data scanner runs each file in milliseconds, in a lightweight virtual machine to force threats to reveal themselves, improving both detections rates and performance.
  • Network firewall and intrusion prevention technology analyzes incoming and outgoing traffic and blocks threats while they travel through the network before reaching endpoints. Rules-based firewall and browser protection defend against web-based attacks. With strong network protection, you can detect most threats before they reach endpoints.
  • File reputation analysis identifies whether a file is good or bad and assigns a reputation score by inspecting key attributes such file download frequency, download data, and download location—allbefore the file arrives at the endpoint.
  • Antivirus protection uses signatures and advanced file heuristics to analyze and eradicate malware on endpoints including viruses, worms, Trojans, spyware, bots, adware, and rootkits. Cloud-based file lookups during file scans provide the latest information and protect against outbreaks and new and emerging malware.

What is the Symantec Endpoint Protection Cloud agent and how does it work?

The Symantec Endpoint Protection Cloud agent delivers services to a selected endpoint (laptop, desktop, or file server); it communicates information about system health, threats, and security policies with the management console. The agent receives protection updates via the service infrastructure. Agents are deployed via standard download or email invitation. The agent in the email invitation situation is installed by the OS of the machine that is being enrolled. With all supported platforms other than Windows 7, the MDM function of the device is enrolled first and then used that to install the agent. They can also be deployed to an organisation’s computers using a redistributable package. Once an agent has been installed on the selected endpoint systems, the agent is in position to help defend customer computer systems against a myriad of risks and threats.

What is the timeframe required for implementation?

The time frame of implementing Symantec Endpoint Protection Cloud is much shorter than a traditional implementation, due to the elimination of onsite management hardware and software installation. Each implementation timeframe may differ depending on the environment size.  If making use of the self-enrolment feature, a user can self-enrol a single endpoint in about a minute, the machine will then take anywhere from a couple more minutes to a half an hour (depending on bandwidth mostly) to complete the install and grab all the latest content/policy/etc, but no user interaction is required for that part. A user installing on 5 devices could complete their interactive portions in less than 10 minutes.

What type of reporting is available through Symantec Endpoint Protection Cloud?

Symantec Endpoint Protection Cloud provides flexible reporting including:

  • Alert History – A historical view of alerts/events that have occurred for one or more users.
  • Security Audit – A historical view of user generated events
  • Firewall History – Provides a summary of firewall events for one or more computers.
  • Risk Detection – Details the numerous types of risks detected in one or more computers.
  • Security Overview – Provides a summary of the overall security of all computers.
  • Reports can be exported into PDF, HTML and XML formats.

*Administrators can run on-demand reports or choose to schedule reporting at specified intervals and send via email for review.

What are the impacts of installing Symantec Endpoint Protection Cloud on a Microsoft Exchange server?

Symantec Endpoint Protection Cloud will automatically detect the exchange server and will not interfere with any mail flow.

How does Symantec Endpoint Protection Cloud affect the performance of user’s machine during definition updates and virus scans?

Definition updates are not monolithic but incremental, and the default scan policy is also tuned for minimal performance impact. Executing an on-demand full system scan will have a minor impact on overall system performance but by default these will only occur if initiated by the end user or admin. The performance of the user’s machine won’t be affected as the services delivered by Symantec Endpoint Protection Cloud has been enhanced by scan performance mitigation and reduced memory usage.

Can local administrators uninstall the product?

A local administrator can uninstall the product if they unenroll the device from SEP Cloud.

How does the corporate policy apply to remote users?
