Best Endpoint/UTM Security

Winner: Symantec for Symantec Endpoint Protection 11.0

As the internet threat landscape has evolved to become more complex and insidious, cybercriminals are now primarily motivated by financial gain instead of achieving notoriety. They are therefore using increasingly stealthy, sophisticated and organized attacks. Mitigating security risks is more challenging for corporations due to heterogeneous technologies, increasing threats and vulnerabilities, organizational alignment, expanding regulatory scopes and budget constraints.

Symantec Endpoint Protection (SEP) features a number of advanced threat prevention technologies to deliver an unmatched defense against malware for laptops, desktops and servers. It delivers advanced technology to protect against today's sophisticated threats and threats not seen before. It includes proactive technologies that automatically analyze application behaviors and network communications to detect and actively block threats. It also provides device and application control features to manage actions and secure data. SEP seamlessly integrates these essential security capabilities in a single agent administered via a single management console.

SEP leverages other leading security technologies and IT investments organizations may already have in place, including leading software deployment tools, patch management tools and security information management tools.

SEP delivers a lower total cost of ownership by reducing administrative overhead as well as the costs associated with managing multiple endpoint security products.

These services include implementation and migration services that are available for a single site deployment for small- and mid-sized businesses through global multiple site deployments for large enterprise customers.
