Symantec is a global leader in providing security, storage and systems management solutions to help their customers – from consumers and small businesses to the largest global organisations – secure and manage their IT assets. Symantec software and services protect against more risks at more points, more completely and efficiently than any other company, enabling confidence wherever information is used or stored. Symantec’s leadership position in information security is unprecedented:
Since being founded in 1982, Symantec has grown into a Fortune 500 company through a combination of internal development, strategic acquisition and partnering with industry leaders and has evolved to become one of the world’s largest software companies. Symantec has annual revenues in excess of $6 billion, over $2.5 billion in cash and invests 13% of annual revenue into research and development.
Symantec’s 21,500+ employees in over 40 countries includes 300+ staff in the UK over 1,000 staff in Ireland – hundreds of whom work in Blanchardstown, Dublin – their largest facility outside of North America and a location which includes not just manufacturing and operational staff but also multiple research and support teams servicing customers all across Europe.
Symantec operates the largest Global Intelligence Network. Their security research centres around the world provide unparalleled analysis of and protection from malware, security risks, and vulnerabilities. Symantec Security Response provides customers with comprehensive, global, 24/7 Internet security expertise to guard against today’s complex Internet threats. Security Response from Symantec conducts in-depth research and analysis of current Internet threat trends. By leveraging their enterprise customer base, consumer Norton customer base and its Cloud services, Symantec has a unique view of global known and emerging threats.
Symantec’s Global Intelligence Network (GIN) is a massive archive of security data; monitoring, analysing and processing more than 10 trillion security events per year worldwide. This means taking big data that comes from various streams and finding the common threads that connect them that comprise an attack. Finding these indicators of compromise (IoC) and correlating them allows Symantec to design new methods of detection and prevention.
The importance of incorporating global security intelligence into a security program should not be underestimated. The best way to protect your network from threats is to understand what and who is likely to attack you, and also to learn what newly identified vulnerabilities may be exploited to attack your network.
Shift from reactive security. Traditional security solutions, although effective, only identify threats as they hit the enterprise. Adding visibility into the global threat landscape can enable a more proactive security policy to be implemented. Trying to keep pace with the threat landscape and to aggregate threat data from numerous sources makes identifying relevant threats and prioritising mitigation actions more than full-time tasks.
Breadth and depth of data. The GIN offers visibility into empirical, real-world customer data from enterprises and consumers, Symantec.cloud meta-data, forums, vendors, honeynets and other third-party data combined with the largest collection of end-point sensors in the industry.
