MOUNTAIN VIEW, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 03/28/13 -- Symantec Corp. (NASDAQ: SYMC) today announced that The Cardiac and Vascular Institute (TCAVI) is entrusting the protection of their sensitive information to Symantec, utilizing Symantec Endpoint Protection Small Business Edition 2013 and Symantec Backup Exec.cloud. Because the healthcare practice has multiple locations, and employees are using a variety of remote endpoints, it was important to implement a flexible security and backup solution that could be administered from a central location.

"When our company was formed from the merger of two healthcare practices, we found ourselves dealing with four or five different antivirus solutions," said Josh Cook, IT director for The Cardiac and Vascular Institute. "We had been using Symantec Backup Exec.cloud, and we knew how simple and effective it was at helping us maintain high availability of our information. Symantec's cloud-managed endpoint protection solution integrates into the same management interface, is within our budget, and it is a great fit for us."
Because of strict regulations in the healthcare industry regarding patient records and other sensitive data, TCAVI required a security solution that would keep them compliant without hindering their ability to deliver the information employees need, when they need it. "We have doctors who attend conferences all over the world, and we have to make sure that information access on outside networks can't endanger confidential records," noted Cook. "With Symantec, our patient information is safe and our employees have the freedom to be productive."
Symantec Endpoint Protection Small Business Edition 2013 enables businesses to protect desktops, laptops and servers with a cloud-managed service. Updates happen seamlessly and automatically even when devices are not connected to the company network. This is especially helpful for home-based transcriptionists, enabling TCAVI to maintain up-to-date protection for their employees' own machines. Symantec Endpoint Protection Small Business Edition 2013 delivers antivirus, antispyware, firewall and host intrusion prevention technologies to secure endpoints at every level. Administrators can perform updates from the central interface in real time, and compile comprehensive reports on security activities.
TCAVI's recent upgrade to Symantec Endpoint Protection Small Business Edition 2013 introduces an additional benefit -- the ability to prevent file transfers to USB flash drives. This improves their Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) compliance posture and further reduces the risk of confidential information exposure.
