It’s Time to Simplify the Threat Defense Lifecycle

Protect. Detect. Correct.


Discover how we are building a platform-based architecture with four security systems: endpoint, cloud, hybrid data centers, and threat management.

With the rising volume and complexity of threats, and the shrinking time and resources to handle them, security practitioners must evolve their approach. The job hasn’t changed: to protect vital services and information from theft, manipulation, and loss from external and internal actors. But the way we do the job needs to change, by focusing on ways to reduce security fragmentation, automate tasks, and force-multiply capabilities.

We believe that an open and integrated system best enables organizations to effectively block threats, identify compromises, and expedite remediation. It’s at the center of our commitment to enable a safe and connected world. Building on our leading endpoint protection solutions, diverse technologies, and widely adopted and open centralized management platform, we can help you expedite the entire threat defense lifecycle.

Work with us to apply actionable intelligence, selective automation, and real-time collaboration. We’ll help you integrate a dynamic endpoint, intelligent analytics, cloud-delivered security, and centralized management into an adaptive system that protects, detects, and corrects today’s threats. Together, we can reduce the threats that get through, find them faster, and use fewer resources in the process.

Threat Defense Lifecycle


Enable users to be more productive while blocking the most pervasive attacks and disrupting never-before-seen techniques and payloads. Our hybrid, integrated system unites endpoint and cloud controls to deliver anti-malware, data protection, and web security managed through a single, centralized platform. This reduces fragmentation, allows for security automation, and enhances capabilities to combat attacks more effectively with less effort.


No single analysis or intelligence source can detect sophisticated attacks. You need multifaceted, tiered analysis that identifies atypical behavior of low-threshold attacks that would otherwise go unnoticed. This allows for detecting, containing, and resolving more issues with far less damage. Our solution gathers both local and global security intelligence, integrates an array of behavioral and contextual analytics, and leverages centralized management for better insight, more effective threat identification, and faster investigation of events.


Streamline the threat defense lifecycle by facilitating triage, investigation, and remediation. Our cloud-based management reduces maintenance while making it easier to enhance protection and policies. Security and threat insights become triggers for automated action to expedite cleanup and quickly adapt current security policies. It’s a system that learns from security incidents and continually evolves, providing you better protection going forward.
