Symantec has released a new anti-virus product aimed at both small and large businesses.

Endpoint Protection 11.0 is a single console that has built-in anti-virus and anti-spyware, firewall and host- and network-based intrusion prevention solutions (IPS).

The product can be used with encryption keys, has a reduced memory footprint of 24 MB when on standby and features a function, which controls access to endpoint applications, according to Symantec.

It is aimed at companies wanting to protect desktop computers, laptops and servers against malware, such as rootkits and zero-day threats, and includes a range of training and support materials.

The security company also unveiled an updated version of its Network Access Control product today.

The device is an optional module that can be added to Endpoint Protection if companies wish to evaluate endpoint status, provide network access and tackle problems in the policy and standards process, said the company.

Symantec Endpoint Protection 11.0 and Network Access Control 11.0 are available now.

Pricing was unavailable at the time of going to press.
