Symantec has announced Desktop Firewall 2.0, to protect corporate information that resides on remote users’ systems.
Firewall prevents hackers from gaining access to corporate networks and defends organizations from involuntary involvement in distributed denial of service (DoS) attacks. It is also a key component of Symantec Enterprise Security - a comprehensive, security solution for enterprise computing environments.
“With more corporate users working from remote locations and a parallel increase in cybercrime, it is imperative that companies prevent their remote PCs and mobile clients from being used as back doors to the corporate network,” said Gail Hamilton, senior vice president of Symantec enterprise solutions division. “Firewall provides a protected environment for remote and mobile workers.”
Symantec is a leading provider of virus protection, risk management, Internet content and e-mail filtering, remote management and mobile code detection technologies. Headquartered in California, US, the company operates in more than 33 countries.
