Symantec Endpoint Protection also ensures that the client computers meet compliance requirements. You may need to enforce the company's security policy, such as blocking computers from opening certain applications or websites. Or, you may need to prevent security breaches and enforce security and privacy-related regulations. For example, Symantec solutions help healthcare organizations to enforce healthcare data provisions against medical identity theft.
Symantec Endpoint Protection uses the following tools to enforce compliance requirements:
The Host Integrity policy ensures that the endpoints are protected and compliant. For example, you can make sure that every computer is running a firewall or a particular operating system security patch.
Symantec Endpoint Protection provides multi-dimensional analysis, robust graphical reporting, and an easy-to-use Dashboard. You can use reports and logs to check that the computers in your network are connected, protected, and compliant with company policy.
