Symantec web security monitoring

Tuesday, 13 April, 2010

Symantec has announced web security monitoring, a managed security service designed to allow users to protect their end users and online web presence from pervasive web threats.

It provides 24/7 monitoring and analysis of web security technologies to protect organisations - enabling rapid reaction to threats to end users, web presence and confidential data, identifying gaps in security controls to foster proactive security improvements and demonstrating compliance to internal policies and industry regulations.

While deployment of web security technologies such as web proxy, web gateway and web application firewall security technologies strengthens corporate defences, the combination of real-time monitoring and notification from security analysts enables IT teams to quickly zero in on hard-to-find compromised systems and close gaps in their security controls.

Through web security monitoring, Symantec synthesises user log data with a reliable source of up-to-date global threat intelligence and performs monitoring to help ensure optimal protection. The service monitors users’ proxy and gateway security devices for connections from hosts within their networks to sites suspected or known to contain malicious code and provides a daily summary report of this activity. If a policy violation or compromise occurs, the user is notified immediately. This vigilance establishes an ‘early warning’ system and facilitates strengthening of policies and protective measures against the web threat vector.

The monitoring extends security monitoring capabilities deeper into a client’s web-based activities and web presence, and gives early awareness to potential malicious activity. It provides advanced analysis via Symantec’s global intelligence network and expands security monitoring coverage providing enterprise-wide security monitoring (from edge to endpoint including all threat vectors).
