Symantec Named a Leader in Enterprise Email Security by Independent Research Firm

Sponsored by Businesswire

Symantec Corporation (NASDAQ: SYMC), the world’s leading cyber security
company, today announced that it has been positioned as a Leader in “The
Forrester Wave™: Enterprise Email Security, Q2 2019,” a
new report
published by Forrester Research, Inc.

The Q2 2019 Forrester WaveTM report evaluated 12 select
vendors based on a comprehensive set of 32 evaluation criteria in the
categories of current offering, strategy, and market presence. Based on
these criteria, Symantec was recognized as a Leader.

Email remains an attractive target for cyber criminals – Symantec’s
annual Internet
Security Threat Report
found that 65 percent of targeted attacks
started with a spear phishing email. As email spreads across devices and
into the cloud, enterprises are struggling to develop a complete,
integrated email security solution using multiple point products that
only address portions of the email security problem and often fail to
integrate across security infrastructure.

According to the Forrester report, “Customers note Symantec’s
ease-of-use and customer support as strengths. The ECS [Email Content
Security] offering integrates with other parts of the Symantec portfolio
such as the web security offering, browser isolation technology, and DLP

Email is an integral part of Symantec’s Integrated Cyber
Defense (ICD) Platform, which delivers comprehensive protection — threat
analysis, blocking, remediation, and more —across web, endpoint, email,
and cloud apps. Deep integrations between products allow users to more
safely migrate to cloud email solutions, thwart business email
compromise (BEC) and credential theft, prevent data loss, protect
against email fraud, ransomware, and spear phishing attacks, detect and
contain intrusions, and more – all while reducing the cost and
complexity that comes with managing multiple point solutions.

“Email represents a unique challenge for the modern enterprise. It’s
both a mission-critical business application and the most common way for
cyber criminals to launch and distribute threats. In our view, Forrester
highlights the critical need to protect against phishing, fraudulent
email, malicious website links and data loss,” said Patrick Gardner,
senior vice president, email security, Symantec. “We believe that we
were recognized in large part due to our integrated technology portfolio
including email isolation, email authentication, website security and
DLP, combined with our threat intelligence network to
help protect users’ email security across-the-board.”

Symantec email security solutions process more than 2.4 billion emails
each day, and are powered by Symantec’s Global Intelligence Network, the
world’s largest civilian threat network, which utilizes telemetry from
over 175 million endpoints, 80 million web proxy users, and 57 million
attack sensors in 157 countries.
