In a sign that it is continuing to digest the technology it swallowed through three high-profile purchases last July, Symantec Corp. today announced an upgrade to the DeepSight Threat Management System, which it acquired when it bought SecurityFocus Inc. in July.
DeepSight Threat Management System is an early-warning system that uses a worldwide network of firewall and intrusion-detection systems maintained by more than 19,000 data partners to aggregate and correlate attack data.
The system provides security administrators with analyses of emerging threats, customizing those alerts to the customer's network configuration. The system is designed to prevent or mitigate the effect of attacks with the help of advanced warning and targeted countermeasures, according to Symantec.
