Control Manager

Centralized, User-centric Management for Threat and Data Protection

Control Manager

Centralized visibility across multiple layers of security

  • Simplify administration
  • Improve security and compliance
  • Manage consistent data and threat policies
  • Increase visibility with user-centric management

Centralize threat and data protection policy management with a single management console that manages, monitors, and reports across multiple layers of security, as well as across on-premise and cloud deployment models.

Consistent security management will help you bridge the IT silos that often separate layers of protection and deployment models. This type of centralized approach improves protection, reduces complexity, and eliminates redundant and repetitive tasks in security administration—all of which make your organization more secure and your life easier.

  • Unifies policy enforcement for threat and data protection across endpoint, messaging, collaboration, web, and mobile security
  • Improves threat response and investigation to identify and respond to threats as they occur
  • Provides access to actionable threat intelligence
  • Centralizes the identification of botnet and targeted attack command and control (C&C) communications across endpoint, web, data center, and email security products
