Symantec Offers Security and Storage Management Through Amazon Web Services
Symantec Endpoint Protection, Veritas Storage Foundation provide customers with complementary security and storage management solutions on Amazon EC2
"As many businesses increasingly leverage the cloud for applications and services, they want to protect and manage those environments with the security and storage management solutions they are used to from Symantec," said Greg Hughes, group president, Enterprise Product Group, Symantec. "By taking the same proven security and storage management solutions that organizations have come to rely on in their data center and extending them to Amazon EC2, Symantec is delivering on its commitment to provide value in the cloud."
"As a web service that provides resizable compute capability on demand, Amazon EC2 makes webscale computing easier for customers of all sizes," said Steve Rabuchin, General Manager of Developer Relations and Business Development for Amazon Web Services (AWS). "We're pleased that our mutual customers can now extend familiar Symantec security and online storage management solutions to the AWS cloud."
Amazon EC2 users now have access to key protection technologies provided by Symantec Endpoint Protection. Symantec Endpoint Protection combines Symantec AntiVirus with advanced threat prevention to deliver defense against malicious attacks such as viruses, worms, spyware, Trojans, zeroday threats, and rootkits. Symantec Endpoint Protection helps ensure information remains safe and business assets are protected wherever that information resides.
Amazon EC2 users also now have access to advanced online storage management capabilities provided by Veritas Storage Foundation Basic from Symantec, allowing them to manage multiple hosts from a central interface and optimize storage performance and availability online. Storage Foundation enables nondisruptive storage operations through GUIbased management and online configuration with dynamic disks.
"We have been running Symantec Endpoint Protection locally to secure the endpoints and servers in our computing environment and have been very pleased with the level of protection it has provided," said David Jordan, CISO of Arlington County. "As our infrastructure becomes more of a mix between onpremise and offpremise offerings, we look forward to leveraging these new delivery models for security and storage solutions."
Today's announcement marks another significant step in Symantec's cloud strategy to deliver customers unmatched choice in the adoption of cloud solutions based on the company's enterprise class products. For more information, please visit http://www.symantec.com/cloud.
