Symantec is revamping its endpoint tool lineup with Symantec Endpoint Security (SES), a new platform designed to deliver protection, detection, and response in a single agent installation. SES also aims to reduce the attack surface, hunt for threats, and assess and prevent breaches.
The idea is to provide businesses with an easier way to fight more advanced attacks. SES can be deployed and managed via the cloud or on-premises, or a hybrid of both, with one install on traditional and mobile enterprise devices. Its varying levels of threat-hunting capabilities are meant to supplement the existing resources of any given organization, Symantec explains.
Businesses that cannot manage threat hunting, remote, investigation, and preauthorized remediation can find these capabilities in SES. Enterprise users with their own in-house investigation teams can opt into the Threat Hunting Center add-on, which is designed to automate threat hunting across security devices in the SOC and enable faster response.
