Symantec Named a Leader in Gartner Magic Quadrant for Managed Security Services, Worldwide

Sponsored by Businesswire

Symantec Corp. (NASDAQ: SYMC), the world’s leading cyber security
company, today announced it has been positioned by Gartner, Inc. in the
Leaders quadrant of the Q2 2019 Magic
Quadrant for Managed Security Services, Worldwide
for the 15th
time since the report’s inception in 2005.

The Managed Security Services report evaluated 14 vendors based on
completeness of vision and ability to execute against 15 criteria.
According to the report, “For other organizations that have little to no
security team and a lower security operations maturity, the expectations
are that the MSSP will do more than just issue an alert and let the
customer fend for itself. They need the MSSP to take an active role in
analyzing, triaging, and then disrupting or containing the threat, i.e.,
they need the MSS to act as a first-level incident responder for them.”

Symantec’s Managed Security Services (MSS) can transform an
organization’s security program through its integrated services
portfolio powered by industry-leading threat intelligence, advanced 24×7
monitoring, incident response and the unequaled human expertise of its
global cyber security network. Through Symantec’s Integrated Cyber
Defense Platform, MSS boosts threat detection and response with an
ever-evolving suite of capabilities. These include Managed Network
Forensics, Managed Cloud Defense, and the recently added Managed
Endpoint Detection and Response
, which
helps organizations quickly discover and resolve threats with deep
endpoint visibility and superior detection analytics, reducing
mean-time-to-remediation. Strengthened by Symantec’s Global Intelligence
Network, the world’s largest civilian threat intelligence network,
Symantec’s Cyber Security Services equips organizations with the
technology, experience and expertise that are vital for protection,
visibility, and control of critical assets, users, and data across cloud
and on-premises environments.

“Companies around the world are challenged in maintaining a strong
security posture due to a significant skills gap, fragmented tools,
increasingly damaging cyber security threats, and the growing complexity
of modern cyber security environments. Symantec’s Cyber Security
Services provide fully-managed, 24x7x365 threat monitoring, detection,
and response to fortify companies against known and emerging threats,”
said Samir Kapuria, executive vice president and general manager, Cyber
Security Services, Symantec. “We’re honored to be positioned in
Gartner’s Leaders quadrant for the 15th time, which we feel
is a testament to Symantec’s world-class team of experts and an
integrated platform powered by the world’s leading technology,
experience and the global visibility required to give our customers an
edge and keep them a step ahead of their adversaries.”
