Symantec Named Top Player in Radicati Group’s APT Protection and Web Sec Industry Report

Technology and innovation to protect the enterprise

Symantec, a division of Broadcom, is pleased to announce that we have again received Top Player honors in the newest product ranking conducted by The Radicati Group in the areas of Advanced Persistent Threat (APT) Protection and Web Security.

The Radicati Market Quadrant reports measure the strength of our product offerings compared with the other companies in enterprise security. For Symantec, this latest high ranking offers further testament to the strength of our position in enterprise protection as well as the focused innovation that has kept our company at the forefront of security technology.

These awards take on added significance in that it marks the 7th time that Symantec has emerged as Top Player in Radicati’s annual comparison of APT Protection vendors and the 14th year it was named Top Player when it came to Web Security.

Symantec, a division of Broadcom, is pleased to announce that we have again received Top Player honors in the newest product ranking conducted by The Radicati Group in the areas of Advanced Persistent Threat (APT) Protection and Web Security.

Indeed, despite a tumultuous year marked by a global pandemic, our teams remained focused on finding new ways to make it easier for customers to securely make the move to the cloud. The cloud transition was already underway but it went into turbo drive as the world shifted seemingly overnight to work-at-home routines. That’s when Symantec lived up to its legacy and again demonstrated our ability to protect enterprises with robust tools to keep them safe in a fast-changing threat landscape. 

At the same time, we kept our ears to the ground to make sure that we were doing whatever possible to help them navigate this shift in the marketplace. That’s why we rolled out new subscription-based licensing models to help organizations with their digital transformation and get the best-possible web protection suite for their data without needing to incur major capital expenses.

Winning in APT Protection

In determining our APT Protection leadership, Radicati evaluated us on the comparative functionality of our solutions, particularly when it came to the detection, prevention and possible remediation of zero-day threats and persistent malicious attacks. They measured different categories such as sandboxing, EDR, CASB, reputation networks, threat intelligence management and reporting, forensic analysis, among others, where Symantec was stacked up against other leading vendors. 

Our integrated product portfolio was evaluated on how well it defended against threats across all vectors, including endpoint, network, web, email, mobile, cloud applications, and more. Long story, short, we excelled. Radicati recognized that Symantec provided network, endpoint and email security solutions for advanced threat protection to safeguard against advanced persistent threats and targeted attacks, detecting both known and unknown malware, and automating the containment and resolution of incidents.

Winning in Web Security

Similarly, our strong position at the top of Radicati’s Corporate Web Security leadership quadrant was a testament to our ability to protect corporate users and networks from web-based malware as well as for how we help organizations maintain web compliance and prevent data loss.

Our Web Security portfolio is powered by great technology and is backed by the Symantec Global Intelligence Network (GIN), which offers real-time protection from malware in real-time URL filtering. Symantec GIN taps into data gathered from:

  • 175,000,000 endpoints
  • 80,000,000 web proxies users
  • 126,000,000+ attack sensors
  • 500+ security experts working non-stop

Needless to say, no other security vendor has anything that matches this capability.
