Symantec launched a new platform designed to keep cloud applications and cloud infrastructure safe from cyber security threats.

Posted on: November 11, 2011


  • Symantec O3 – unveiled at the company’s Vision conference in Barcelona – works for both public and private cloud infrastructure by allowing businesses to extend their internal security policies out to the cloud. It aims to create a single “control point” for all cloud services a firm uses, keeping the same identity and information security for each employee across every solution, be it application or infrastructure-based.

 

  • The first feature is the cloud access control layer, which enables companies to keep their existing identities but help them federate it across their multiple cloud services. Next is the information security layer, which draws on Symantec’s existing DLP and PGP encryption solutions, stopping any confidential information entering the cloud before it is encrypted.

 

  • Finally there is the monitoring aspect to O3, alerting businesses to any significant security events and giving them the full picture of what is going on across their cloud environment.
