Targeted attacks using low-prevalence malware can often evade traditional AntiVirus defenses, leading to theft of intellectual property, sabotage or breach of customer data. How can Symantec Endpoint Protection (SEP) help defend against these determined attack campaigns from persistent adversaries?
Symantec adds protection against all malware samples that come to our attention, regardless of their source. This includes malware created by well-financed or state-sponsored groups.
To reduce risk, it is important that:
All endpoints must be defended by a reliably-working SEP client and with definitions that are kept up to date.
Logs of activity within the organization be actively monitored. Suspicious files or traffic identified by SEP should be investigated by the security admin and action taken, when necessary.
SEP be used as part of a layered defense. Additional security measures must be put in place on mail servers and other means of entry into the network.
