Symantec Insight™: Aggregating contributions from over 175 million systems worldwide
Symantec Endpoint Protection 12.1 is driven by Symantec Insight™ - revolutionary security technology that analyses files within the context of their age, usage frequency and location.
Through our global community of opted-in users, Symantec Insight™ correlates tens of billions of linkages between users, files, and websites to expose and identify rapidly mutating threats.
Unlike conventional approaches, Symantec Insight™ tracks contributions from over 175 million systems, learning from a vast pool of shared resources to deliver faster and more accurate malware detection. This allows you to automatically isolate files at risk from those that are safe, and reduces your scan overheads by as much as 70%.
Black-listing and white-listing only work when there are many of copies of a known infected file. But the majority of malware today mutates to hide from black lists and white lists. Symantec Endpoint Protection 12.1 removes malware creators' main advantage: mutate too little and they'll get caught by signature-based anti-virus software - mutate too much and they'll be blocked by Symantec Insight™.
Let's turn the tables on cybercrime.
