Symantec Named Top Player in Radicati Group’s APT Protection and Corporate Web Security

Innovation and advanced technologies to protect the enterprise against ransomware, and all known, and unknown threats

Symantec, by Broadcom Software, is pleased to receive Top Player recognition in the newest market ranking conducted by The Radicati Group in the critical areas of Advanced Persistent Threat (APT) and Corporate Web Security. Top Player is Radicati’s highest and most exclusive honor.

Adding even greater significance, these evaluations recognize Symantec solutions for the 8th consecutive time as Top Player in Radicati‘s annual comparison of APT protection vendors, and for the 15th consecutive year in Corporate Web Security.

Against the background of a year marked by uncertainty due to the shifting surges of a global pandemic, Symantec teams remained committed to helping customers embrace cloud transformation both safely and efficiently. Symantec rolled out new tools to help users deal more effectively with new threats and the rising tide of ransomware attacks. All the while, the team also worked relentlessly to deliver new products, innovations, and technologies to protect the enterprise in a constantly changing threat landscape.

What’s more, we added new Application Visibility and Control features, Localization Zones worldwide, new SSL inspection capabilities, and partnered with Google Cloud to improve and make delivery of leading security solutions even easier and more efficient for customers. Continued innovation with new subscription-based licensing helps customers quickly adapt to new threats and scale to shifts in the marketplace or user needs.

Setting the Pace in APT Protection

Symantec, by Broadcom Software, maintained its position as Top Player in Radicati’s Market Quadrant for the comprehensive, breadth, scale, and excellence of solutions.

Radicati specifically recognized how Symantec teams have built on  already industry-leading, integrated threat protection to safeguard against advanced persistent threats and targeted attacks, detect and prevent both known and unknown attacks -- including novel ransomware and zero-day threats -- and automate their remediation. Radicati emphasized solution strengths including our proxy-based Secure Web Gateway (SWG), customized sandboxing, EDR, ZTNA, CASB, threat intelligence and reporting, forensic analysis, and other advanced security analytics.

The integrated product portfolio was acknowledged for providing the finest defense across all threat vectors, including endpoint, network, web, email, mobile, and cloud applications. Symantec stood apart for providing multi-layered network, endpoint, web, and email security solutions, including real-time visibility into attacks, for advanced threat protection against advanced persistent threats and targeted attacks, and automating their containment and remediation.

Top Player in Web Security

Symantec, by Broadcom Software, was equally honored for its top player position at the apex of the Radicati Corporate Web Security Market Quadrant for the ability to protect customers and their networks from web-based malware. Radicati cited such Symantec tools and technologies as advanced web application controls, sandboxing, URL filtering, data loss protection (DLP), remote browser isolation, and real-time, interactive reporting capabilities.

Symantec was also recognized for its comprehensive deployment options, and specifically for our ability to deliver our web security solutions on-premises, in cloud, or hybrid. Radicati called out the strengths of Symantec’s proxy-based web security architecture, numerous advanced security components, and the ease of its availability to organizations as a single, user-based subscription. And we were cited for the strength of our Global Intelligence Network (GIN), which backs up our great technology with real-time threat intelligence, URL filtering and protection from malware.

No other security vendor comes close to matching these capabilities.
