Symantec warns of blended security threats
"Security threats today are extremely nimble," says Leigh Costin, Asia-Pacific regional product manager for Symantec's enterprise solutions range. "There are toolkits out there now which enable rapid virus development and multifaceted attacks. Security systems often don't have enough integration between firewall, antivirus, and intrusion detection."
Costin was speaking at the Asia-Pacific launch of Symantec's Gateway Security appliance, which aims to integrate various security aspects into a single hardware device to be placed at the edge of a company's network. The appliance, which costs from $11,562, combines firewall, antivirus, intrusion detection, content filtering, and VPN capability.
