Symantec Protection Suite Add-On for Hosted Email Security
This paper studies malware and spam as the two most harmful threats to email and IT security. While malware and spam tend to cause tremendous harm to the health and viability of IT networks, it is email security that deserves tremendous attention. This paper looks at cyber criminal attacks that focus on stealing money from businesses through the internet. The study of this criminal activity becomes more important because such attacks are becoming more sophisticated and frequent. The paper looks at malware as an attack that can enter an IT infrastructure via two primary routes - at the endpoints (laptops, desktops, servers) or from the internet via web and email traffic. Therefore, it is important to protect IT systems from all these ends. This is a gargantuan task that can be confusing. This paper talks about Symantec and its advanced technologies that can help users to undertake proactive protection for their laptops, desktops, servers, mobile devices, messaging and web environments. The Symantec Protection Suites provide a range of solutions that enable users to create a protected endpoint, messaging, and web environment that protects users from end points as well as against threats on the web. This suite secures IT against complex Internet threats, and is quickly recoverable in case there is a failure. With the hosted email security add-on that Symantec provides, Symantec Protection Suite provides users with the power of cloud computing to help secure and manage email traffic.
