Symantec Debuts New Enterprise Security Apps

With new threats to businesses’ data emerging all the time, Symantec is rolling out a series of new enterprise security offerings designed to better safeguard critical data from malware and hackers.

eSecurity Planet takes a look at the new offerings — Control Compliance Suite 10.0, Data Loss Prevention Suite 10.5, Altiris IT Management Suite 7.0 and Symantec Protection Suite — and hears from Symantec brass at the company’s Vision 2010 security software conference on their thoughts about the current state of the art in enterprise security and cyber threats.

LAS VEGAS — Control was the central theme of the opening keynote at Symantec’s Vision 2010 security software conference as top executives here hammered home the importance of proactive vigilance to fend off malware attacks from cyber crooks targeting companies’ most sensitive data.

Unlike most vendor conference keynotes, Symantec (NASDAQ: SYMC) opted for a more informal address complete with showgirls, a live house band and a late-night talk show format featuring Steve Morton, the company’s vice president of product management and strategy, playing the role of David Letterman as he interviewed prominent executive “guests” about the past, present and uncertain future of network security.
