Symantec has unveiled its new Advanced Threat Protection (ATP) software for enterprise users.

Advanced threats, such as ransomware, remote access trojans, advanced persistent threats (APTs) and zero day attacks, are on the rise and security professionals can no longer rely on using individual point products at each control point to stop them, says the firm.

Symantec ATP allows customers to:
- Uncover a full range of threats from APTs to zero day attacks across endpoint, network and email, with cross-control point detection and environmental search
- Prioritise what matters most by correlating the threat intelligence from across local control points with all that Symantec sees globally through its massive telemetry
- Remediate the threats fast through containment of endpoints and blocking new instances across control points, with one click, from a single console
- Leverage existing investments in Symantec Endpoint Security and Email Security.cloud, without deploying any new endpoint agents

“Security professionals are constantly on their toes trying to monitor and prevent the next cyber-attack,” said Michael A. Brown, president and CEO, Symantec.

“We’re moving the industry forward with Symantec Advanced Threat Protection by giving customers a complete picture of their entire enterprise from a single console. Now they can filter out the noise and quickly discover and remediate an attack.”

The security firm has also announced that its Norton business unit has joined London Irish as an official sponsor.

The sponsorship deal will see the Norton brand become the club’s Official Security Software partner with the Norton brand appearing on the Club’s playing shorts for all Aviva Premiership and European Rugby Challenge Cup fixtures.

“We are delighted to have secured this important partnership with a truly global company in Symantec’s Norton brand. It is a major player within the security industry and has recognised the ambition we have as a Club. We look forward to sharing our exciting journey both on and off the pitch throughout the season,” Darren Henry, head of commercial at London Irish said.

“Our Norton Security products are built to perform under pressure for real people in real world situations, and there’s nothing more pressurised than rugby as a sport,” commented Nick Shaw, general manager EMEA at Norton.

“For this reason, as well as their ambitious plans for the future, we are pleased to be working with London Irish and look forward to showing our support for the club – and its loyal supporters – throughout the season.”
