Symantec refines DeepSight with personal attacks

Symantec Corp will later this month update its DeepSight Threat Management System 7.0 service to provide customers more detailed information about attacks that target their own networks, the company is expected to announce today.

The company also intends to roll its DeepSight Alert Service vulnerability warning feed into TMS for the first time, although it will still be available as a standalone service, according to group product manager Dee Liebenstein.

TMS 7.0 will now be able to warn customers directly when any of their domains are specifically named in a piece of malware — when a denial of service or phishing attack is plotted, for example, Liebenstein said.

The service, delivered via the web, will also be able to provide customers with information about spyware and adware threats, in addition to the regular virus and worm warnings, for the first time, she said.
