Symantec has announced its new cloud access security solution to help secure cloud and internet access and use in an enterprise environment. These enhancements and integrations across Symantec’s network security portfolio further position Symantec as the only security provider to offer an integrated cloud-delivered solution that lessens operational costs and complexity, while lowering operational risk.
Symantec’s latest solution innovations, part of the Integrated Cyber Defense Platform, enable enterprises to enforce consistent Zero Trust security policies for users accessing SaaS applications, corporate applications in IaaS environments, cloud-based email, and the internet. Zero Trust access security gives authorized users access only to the network and cloud resources they need to accomplish tasks and strictly enforces data security and threat prevention polices. As such, it is an effective way to secure the enterprise as it moves to the cloud.
In addition to access controls, the solution provides unique visibility and content scanning capabilities, allowing enterprises to enforce consistent DLP policies on information being sent to cloud and web destinations, and threat inspection for content downloads. Additional integrations with Symantec VIP for multi-factor authentication and Symantec Web Isolation for enhanced threat prevention further extend the solution. New solution capabilities include SaaS Application Security , IaaS Application Security, Web & Internet Security and Email Security.
