Best integrated security solution

Winner: Symantec for Symantec Protection Suite Enterprise Edition

Symantec Protection Suite Enterprise Edition creates a protected endpoint and messaging and web environment that is secure against today's complex malware, data loss and spam threats. Plus, it is quickly recoverable in the event of failure. The solution includes Symantec's endpoint security, messaging security and system recovery technologies that allow customers to reduce the cost of securing their environments and more effectively manage the inherent risks of today's IT infrastructures. Multiple layers of protection ensure customers are accurately identifying and addressing risks while delivering consistent protection across platforms. In the event of system loss or failure, users may recover individual files and folders in seconds, or complete Windows systems in minutes, thus minimizing downtime.

Symantec Protection Suite Enterprise Edition is unique in being able to provide the combination of multiple security and backup and recovery technologies managed by a single console. Unified management and administration across technologies eliminates deployment complexity, while flexible and scalable configuration options help organizations meet IT policy requirements and eliminate unnecessary operational tasks and their associated costs. Further, Symantec's advanced data leakage prevention and content filtering technologies ease the burden of meeting policy and regulatory objectives by automatically regulating the flow of sensitive information in email and on endpoints.

Ten years ago, a company's business information resided on a closed network, and standard anti-virus software offered adequate protection from malicious, outside attacks. The threat landscape has evolved significantly in the decade since the Melissa virus first appeared: Companies' networks are more open and accessible to partners, customers and contractors. Increasingly, the inability to recover mission-critical information promptly can spell disaster for a company in today's 24/7 business environment. Symantec Protection Suite offers a combination of security and data backup and recovery technologies in one package that's easy to install and manage, saving organizations time and money while ensuring compliance with laws and regulations governing the privacy of confidential/sensitive business information.
