Guard your customers browsing experience with Web Threat Protection from Symantec
Monday, January 15, 2018
As one of the world’s largest malware research companies, Symantec are a global leader in cyber security. In 2016, 76% of websites scanned by Symantec contained vulnerabilities, despite seeing a 30% year-on-year drop in web attacks. Since exploit kits require maintenance of a backend infrastructure, hackers are now shifting their attention to email malware attacks simply because it’s easier to launch a targeted campaign.
Why protect your customer’s browsing experience?
In Symantec’s 2017 Internet Security Threat Report, technology and business-related websites were the most frequently exploited websites. In fact, 2.4 browser vulnerabilities were discovered per day in 2016, with the RIG exploit kit as the main culprit from the Ransom.Cerber ransomware. So even though web browser attacks are decreasing each year, there’s still enough evidence to warrant spending that bit extra on securing your customer’s website and browsing experience.
How can Symantec.cloud help my customers?
Symantec.cloud is an umbrella term for a family of products available through Giacom. Through the Symantec.cloud family, Giacom will offer Email and Web Security, which encompasses three main products, two add-ons and two product bundles – all of which protect your end users’ mailboxes and web browsers from spam, malware and zero-day threats.
Backed by Symantec’s Global Intelligence and comprehensive SLAs, your customers will receive intelligent web threat protection from Web Protect & Control. Featuring multi-layered anti-virus and anti-spyware defences at internet level, along with a URL filtering policy-building engine and roaming user support, Web Protect & Control (also known as Web Security.cloud) is a complete solution that guards against cyber threats and stops your users from clicking on malicious links by performing background safety checks. It’s also simple to deploy and manage with on single admin portal, making your life as a reseller easier.
What bundles are available?
We recognise that web threat protection often comes hand-in-hand with email protection, so Web Protect & Control comes bundled with either Email Protect or Email Safeguard, meaning your customers are protected from both ends of the spectrum. You can also purchase Web Smart Connect, an add-on for web threat protection, which acts as a local proxy while the Smart Connect agent accepts all traffic from the user’s web browser and redirects the web traffic to Symantec’s infrastructure.
