Symantec Builds Out Cloud Portfolio to Enforce 'Zero Trust'

New additions to its Integrated Cyber Defense Platform aim to give businesses greater control over access to cloud resources and applications.

Symantec is beefing up its Integrated Cyber Defense Platform with new controls to secure cloud and Internet access in enterprise environments and support "zero-trust" security standards.

As cloud technology changes the way we work, and as more traffic flows inside and outside organizations, employees need direct and constant access to cloud resources from multiple devices and locations. The zero-trust model assumes all users, inside and outside the network, are untrustworthy, and it shifts access control from the network to a specific user. Authorized users are granted access only to network and cloud resources they need to do their jobs.

Symantec's latest additions aim to help businesses enforce zero-trust policies for software-as-a-service (SaaS) applications, corporate applications in Internet-as-a-service (IaaS) environments, cloud-based email, and the Internet. Its new capabilities also include visibility and content scanning so businesses can enforce data-loss prevention policies (DLP) on data sent to cloud and Web destinations.

"Users want anytime, anywhere access to the applications and corporate resources that allow them to quickly accomplish their tasks, but IT and security professionals need to protect them, and the corporation, from the business risks associated with enabling a direct-access model," said Symantec's Doug Cahill, senior analyst and group director, Enterprise Strategy Group, in a statement.

New capabilities include the CloudSOC Mirror Gateway, which enables CASB security controls for unmanaged devices to control the use of public SaaS applications. The Symantec Secure Access Cloud lets administrators scan content uploaded or downloaded to corporate applications deployed in IaaS and other environments, and lets them inspect with DLP to enforce security policies, and antivirus and sandboxing technologies for threat prevention. The capabilities come from Symantec's recent acquisition of Luminate Security. They also let admins limit users so they can only access corporate apps and resources they're authorized to use.

Symantec's Web Security Service now integrates with Secure Access Cloud so Web sessions, and authenticated user data can be shared to simplify the operation and use of both services. The Email Security Cloud platform can now isolate suspicious email attachments so employees can verify attachments are safe and protect against phishing, ransomware, and account takeover.

enables CASB security controls for unmanaged devices
This has me curious how this may be leveraged. I've seen cerficate issuance to unauthorized devices via NAC solutions but I always found this to be not as comprehenisve as a CASB solution. Maybe some of the CASB functionalities are limited? Would be interesting to know.
