Symantec is one of the world’s largest and most well know security firms, and it’s a reputation that stands up well with its cloud computing workload protection platform.

Organizations of all sizes can benefit from Symantec’s Cloud Workload Protection solution, which offers an easy, yet robust set of capabilities to help protect against different types of threats. It can work in a hybrid cloud or multicloud setting. Users generally are quite satisfied with the platform real-time visibility into cloud workload changes to help identify potential areas of risk.

Looking beyond just basic application workload visibility, a key differentiator is the application binary monitoring feature, which can identify if the core code behind a running cloud application has been tampered with.
