Computer security company Symantec notes users’ frustration with hours’ long PC scanning processes, which also slows the computer system.

Symantec introduces the Symantec Endpoint Protection (SEP) 12 and SEP Small Business Edition, the latest in protection software, which possess patented Insight and Sonar technologies.

Lagtime due to PC security scans will be a thing of the past.

Insight is a cloud-based reputation technology that detects and blocks new threats earlier and more accurately. This allows the security software to improve virus scanning time by automatically identifying high-reputation files.

With Insight, file scanning is optimized by skipping previously scanned files that have remained unchanged, skipping 70 percent of active applications.

Sonar, a hybrid behavioral-reputation engine, monitors running applications for suspicious behaviors and blocks threats in real-time.

An intrusion prevention system also blocks attacks at the network before it can cause damage to the computer.

The program scored high points with independent IT security institute, AVTest as the most effective in real world tests and remediation.

Tests have shown Symantec Endpoint Protection scans faster than at least five other software brands and uses the least PC memory in its operations.

Aside from scanning and eliminating computer viruses, the security software also features anti-spyware, firewall, intrusion prevention, device control, application control and network access control features.
