What is Symantec Web Security Service?

Moving to the cloud introduces new security and compliance risks, but it also enables tremendous new defensive strategies. Cloud-delivered network security adds flexibility and boosts performance, while protecting users with consistent threat prevention and data compliance policies—wherever they go.

Symantec Web Security Service delivers a broad set of advanced capabilities—including a secure web gateway (SWG), software defined perimeter, anti-virus scanning, sandboxing, web isolation, data loss prevention (DLP), and email security. As your users directly access the web, you can extend consistent policies that follow your sensitive data wherever it goes.
