Symantec Offers Enhanced Portal for Enterprises
Internet security products vendor Symantec adds a secure interface to its Managed Security Services offering.
The Secure Internet Interface includes:
An enhanced device tracking and management capability allow users to update information about their devices from the Interface, as well as modify contact priority, and view policy usage statistics. Expanded administration capabilities include the ability to define user roles and detailed permissions for stronger policy enforcement.
"The market in the MSS space is changing," says Jonah Paransky, senior manager of security products for Symantec. "In the past, the information security administrator was the primary user of the portal. Now as security information has moved up as a business priority, we need to convey information to executives higher in the corporation, such as the auditors."
Symantec Managed Security Services is aimed at protecting customers against emerging threats and reducing overall security risk. The 24x7 real-time service provides continuous monitoring and management, expert analysis and immediate response.
Symantec MSS is priced per security device on a monthly basis. Prices range from $750 to $2,000 per month per device, with options for support for gigabit devices, high availability and load balancing options, firewalls, intrusion detection, vulnerability assessment, policy compliance and gateway-managed antivirus services.
