Symantec Revs Endpoint Controls, Debuts Managed Detection and Response

January 30, 2019

Vendor unveils spiffy, updated tools to harden client devices — and a new detection and response service for when bad stuff happens despite them

Symantec on Tuesday rolled out a series of improvements to its endpoint protection portfolio and introduced a new managed service for endpoint detection and response (MEDR) powered by its enhanced EDR 4.0 technology.
