Symantec Corporation (SYMC) on September 13, 2016 introduced Symantec Endpoint Protection Cloud, a new solution for small and mid-sized businesses (SMBs) to protect them from targeted attacks and ransomware. According to the latest Symantec Internet Security Threat Report, 65 percent of all targeted attacks struck small and mid-sized organizations in 20151 to steal valuable company information. Symantec Endpoint Protection Cloud gives SMB owners enterprise-grade protection in a solution that can be set up in less than five minutes and operated by someone with general IT knowledge.
Symantec Endpoint Protection Cloud is for organizations with fewer than 1,000 employees that are looking for an effective way to protect corporate and personal devices on the corporate network. Gartner indicated that by 2018, 95 percent of global enterprises will have both a Choose Your Own Device (CYOD) and a formal Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) plan in place2. This expected flood of new devices will put increasing pressure on businesses with limited IT resources.
“Attackers no longer aim just for the Fortune 500. Small and mid-sized business owners must adopt the same vigilance against advanced attacks and deploy the same modern defense capabilities found in enterprise solutions like machine learning to protect their businesses,” said Javed Hasan, vice president of engineering at Symantec. “With Symantec Endpoint Protection Cloud, we’re providing a cloud-based solution with all the features necessary to keep our SMB customers’ information secure without over-taxing already stretched IT departments.”
