Symantec’s endpoint security product suite has latest update which uses deception technology to keep devices secured. Deception technology is first step towards this efforts in the industry.

It unveiled Endpoint Security for the Cloud Generation along with this new technology. It is used by the companies to trick hackers which makes them believe that they had gained access to the systems.

“Deception technology is a direct result of Symantec’s innovation strategy paired with more than 15 years of endpoint security expertise,” Sri Sundaralingam, head of product marketing for Enterprise Security Products at Symantec.

The technique makes hackers to waste their efforts, time and energy breaking into fake servers.

“With deception on the endpoint, customers can now utilize the threat intelligence and deception capabilities of the largest security company in the world to expose stealthy attack tactics, delay attackers, and determine attacker intent beyond what’s available through purely network-based deception technologies – all at a scale like no other in the market,” continued Sundaralingam.

SEP 14.1 also had a new add-on entity which is called Hardening. It isolates suspicious activity at applications.  It also provides behavioral analysis and machine learning to identify malware.

Symantec Advanced Threat Protection (ATP): Endpoint 3.0 employs SEP’s endpoint detection and response features combined with threat intelligence and machine learning to stop attacks.

Company also launched Skycure’s AI-enabled mobile threat defense software. Skycure was acquired by Symantec for an undisclosed amount.

“One of the most dangerous assumptions in today’s world is that iOS and other mobile devices that employees bring into the office are safe, but the apps and data on these devices are under increasing attack,” stated Symantec CEO Greg Clark at the time. “We believe that tomorrow’s workforce will be completely mobile and will demand a cyber defense solution that travels with them.”
