BT has added a Symantec-built endpoint protection technology to the communications firm’s security products portfolio in an effort to help enterprise customers avoid cyber attacks.
Symantec said Tuesday its Endpoint Protection 14 offering employs machine learning, file reputation analysis, behavior monitoring and memory exploit mitigation tools designed to protect business systems from ransomware, “˜zero-day' and unknown threats.
“Today's attacks are multi-faceted, multi-staged and the endpoint is one of the most critical vulnerabilities,” said Mike Fey, president and chief operating officer for Symantec.
Fey added that organizations need an integrated cyber defense strategy to address the evolving threat landscape.
Symantec found that the number of ransomware attacks worldwide increased by 36 percent last year and the number of detected malware in mobile devices climbed by 105 percent.
Customers can use a unified management console to deploy and manage platforms from Symantec, the company noted.
