Symantec Endpoint Encryption helps in disk encryption
and removable media encryption with centralized
management. Some of its features are single sign on
support, media support, flexible recovery, and
compatibility with native OS encryption functionality.
Symantec is also proficient in email encryption. Its
solutions provided for email encryption are Symantec
Desktop Email Encryption and Symantec Gateway Email Encryption. Symantec Desktop Email Encryption
efficiently encrypts and decrypts email data in the Windows and Mac OS based endpoints. The email
servers supported are Microsoft Exchange Server 2007-2016 and IBM Domino Server 9.0.1 Fix Pack 4.
The encryption algorithms utilized by Symantec Desktop Email Encryption are based on Diffie-Hellman,
DSA, and RSA. Symantec Gateway Email Encryption supports encryption for web browsers, such as
Microsoft Internet Explorer, Microsoft Edge, Mozilla Firefox, and Apple Safari.
Symantec offers Cloud Data Protection Gateway, which integrates with the cloud services platforms and
protects sensitive enterprise data by monitoring traffic. Whenever the sensitive data leaves the enterprise,
the Cloud Data Protection Gateway encrypts it with the AES 256 bit encryption algorithm. The encrypted
data stored in the cloud environment becomes meaningless for attackers, and reverse engineering of
cipher text to plain text is not possible. Cloud Data Protection Gateway also enables tokenization, which is
compliant with PCI-DSS and provides complete visibility in the cloud environment by offering audit entries
that have user, location, date, and time details.
