    5. Network AccessControl TruScan Application Control Device Control (Network) Intrusion Prevention Firewall Antispyware Antivirus Ingredients for Endpoint Security Symantec Network Access Control 11.0 Symantec Endpoint Protection 11.0

    6. Increased Protection, Control & Manageability Reduced Cost, Complexity & Risk Exposure Symantec Endpoint Protection 11.0 and Symantec Network Access Control 11.0 SingleAgent, Single Console Results:

    7. Client User Interface (UI) • Client UI focused on ease-of-use for end-users • Enable users to quickly view settings and navigate Single Agent 7

    8. Easy End User Troubleshooting

    9. Antivirus Symantec Endpoint Protection

    10. Virus Definition Update Options Enterprises can choose from several flexible update options: • Customers can choose how and when to deploy virus definition updates. • Updates are hosted on thousands of servers worldwide. • Microdef technology keeps the download to the desktop small (~ 250K/day). • Fully certified AV content updates are available for SEP three times per day.

    11. Improved Detection and Removal • Repair engine (Eraser) is extensible • Improvements are ongoing • Not dependant on new releases • SEP 11 • Lower level rootkit detection • Admin specified homepage restore • Surgical cookie cleanup ERASER  Bypass MS API Microsoft File System API User Mode Kernel Mode  Direct Volume Scan Windows File System Volume Manager  Mapping Server Rootkit Hook Points

    12. Client Performance • Quicker on-demand scans due to load point caching • Eraser performance improvements • On-demand Scan Tuning Client Performance Enhancements “On the machines I tested, the end-user experience was pleasant. I could easily perform other tasks and switch between applications – in fact, even for the balanced scans…if I didn’t hear the hard disk, I might not have known it was spinning.” – Feedback from External Test customer

    13. Testing Groups • Virus Bulletin 100 • • • • AV Comparatives • • Anti Malware testing Standards Organization •

    14. Third Party Efficacy Tests • Third Party Reviews Validate Effectiveness • High Detection Rates in Real Tests • Low False Positives Symantec Endpoint Protection

    15. Proactive Technologies Symantec Endpoint Protection

    16. ? TruScan:Behavioral Detection Engine EnumerateprocessesEnumerate allprocesses &embeddedcomponents Analyzeprocess behavior Assess behavior& characteristicsof eachprocess Score eachprocess Detectionroutines areweighted &processes areclassified Automaticprotection Malicious codeis identified,reported &automaticallymitigated • Detects 1,000 new threats/month - not detected by leading AV engines • Very low (0.004%) false positive rate

    17. Trojan Score = Valid Score = M N S S biVi aiTi T1 T2 T3 T4 T5 T6 TN i=1 i=1 a1 a2 a3 a4 a5 a6 aN b1 b2 b3 b4 b5 b6 bM V1 V2 V3 V4 V5 V6 VM A New Approach – Behavioral Detection Engine • Each Engine has two sets of detection modules: • Pro-valid = evidence of valid application behavior • Pro-malicious = evidence of malicious application behavior • Each Detection Module has a weight • The weight indicates the importance of the behavioral trait • Each process gets 2 scores: • Valid Score = measure of how valid the process is • Malicious Score = measure of how malicious the process is ** Caveat: It’s not as simple as this - detection Modules are cooperative

    18. A Good Engine Will Create Separation Between Valid Applications & Malicious Code Valid applications Adjust Scores (Sensitivity Settings) to reduce FP’s Malicious Code

    19. Device Control • Block Devices by type (Windows Class ID) • Supports all common ports • USB, Infrared, Bluetooth, Serial, Parallel,FireWire, SCSI, PCMCIA • Can block read/write/execute from removable drives* • Example: • Block all USB devices except USB mouse and keyboard • Peripheral Deice Control • W32.SillyFDC • targets removable memory sticks • spreads by copying itself onto removable drives such as USB memory sticks • automatically runs when the device is connected to a computer

    20. Application Behavior Analysis RegistryAccess Control Module & DLL Loading Control Controls access and writing to registry keys Blocks applications from loading modules Monitors behavior or applications \WINDOWS\system32\ ProcessExecution Control Blocks unwanted programs from running File AccessControl Blocks unwanted access to files or folders Application Control

    21. System Lockdown Features • Prevents unauthorized code from running on protected system • Malware • Unauthorized applications • Creates a Digital Inventory of the system • Checksum.exe tool builds inventory • Create multiple inventories per server • Fingerprints all executables (exe, com, dll, ocx, etc.) • Block anything not on the list from execution System Lockdown
