Cyber security firm Symantec has introduced new innovations to its Cloud Security Platform, to address the challenges of the Cloud Generation holistically.
A Security Platform for the Cloud Generation
Enterprises are experiencing a fundamental shift in the way their employees and customers consume technology. The influx of personally-owned devices, ubiquitous high-speed internet, and cloud-based computing platforms is redefining the traditional IT landscape, and delivering advanced operational capabilities. With the adoption of fully outsourced cloud applications and infrastructure, critical assets, data and users are moving well beyond the traditional corporate security perimeter.
Unfortunately, most security providers are simply providing isolated parts of what is required to secure these transformations, yet the cloud generation mandates a new model of integrated security. The Symantec Cloud Security Platform uniquely provides a complete means for the chief information security officer (CISO) of the modern enterprise to securely enable cloud adoption, while unifying both cloud and traditional on-premise environments for seamless security. Symantec is driving this transformation through a robust, open platform that integrates critical security and compliance frameworks while delivering the most comprehensive set of controls available to protect users and the organizational data with which they interact.
“The value to the enterprise of shifting to cloud applications and services is undeniable. At the same time, cyber criminals look at this new, borderless infrastructure as a potential goldmine,” said Mike Fey, president and chief operating officer at Symantec. “Because of the breadth and depth of our category-leading security portfolio, coupled with the world’s largest civilian cyber intelligence network, Symantec is the only cyber security provider in the industry that can address the challenges of the Cloud Generation holistically, enabling our customers to take full advantage of the cloud while helping to ensure their critical information is secure and protected.”
