  • What is Skeptic technology?

    Skeptic is a heuristic technology that does not rely on signatures to detect new, emerging or even variations of older malware. Using thousands of rules and dozens of advanced techniques, Skeptic detects new and emerging malware through techniques such as: application reputation, junk code analysis, and “link-following” which offers protection against positively-identified viral URL links within emails. Skeptic then looks at all the evidence before reaching a conclusion and taking the appropriate actions. Delivered as a cloud-based service, Skeptic is made more powerful and accurate because it continually learns based on the volume of threats it sees and identifies.

  • Why is Skeptic different?

    Not all heuristic security is created equal. While many companies claim ‘zero-hour’ protection against new and unknown threats, this is often reliant on blunt methods such as blocking executable files (which can also stop legitimate mail) or outdated techniques designed to stop mass virus outbreaks. Skeptic on the other hand, has been in continuous development for more than ten years and can draw on a huge base of knowledge accumulated in that time. Further, it is backed by 19 patents granted or pending and a team of 70 antimalware and antispam experts. Because Skeptic learns as it observes traffic, its intelligence is directly related to the traffic volume of the Symantec.cloud infrastructure.

  • Can I define and enforce granular web usage policies?

    Yes. You can define and enforce granular web usage policies with fully customisable policy creation for websites, website categories and file types. Rules can be based on users, time of day and internet usage consumption.
