Symantec partners to fend off zero-day attacks

Ellen Messmer | May 5, 2014
Symantec today announced its Advanced Threat Protection (ATP) effort for new products and managed security services to support enterprise customers in fending off targeted zero-day attacks in particular. One first step in this entails partnering with Check Point Software, Cisco and Palo Alto Networks to share threat detection information that can rapidly be integrated into Symantec endpoint protection software.

Some analysts think Symantec has a good shot at making its ATP strategy work.

"Symantec is well-positioned to deliver an end-to-end advanced threat solution by building on the technologies it offers today, integrating across its portfolio, and delivering it as a service enhanced by an evolving partner ecosystem," says Jon Oltsik, senior principal analyst at the consultancy Enterprise Security Group.
