The complexity of employee interaction with cloud services has put a strain on existing network security architectures and increased challenges for internal IT security teams, as once office-based workers are given the ability to work remotely using an array of multi-platform devices.

The challenges of how to securely protect your users and data has long been the domain of on-premise secure web gateways; but as organisations look to transition their infrastructure into the cloud, these on-site protection capabilities are becoming inadequate in an evolving threat landscape.


Proactive web protection

The Web Security Service from Symantec is designed as a resilient and performant cloud security service which offers proactive web protection for securing data, effectively managing remote users, and gives the functionality and flexibility for transitioning an entire networking infrastructure to the cloud.
