Slide ObjectiveDescribe the strength of the Global Intelligence Network, which is truly a differentiator for Symantec. ScriptAt the heart of all of our products is the Symantec Global Intelligence Network. We are incredibly proud of this Network, and it just gets more and more powerful all the time.We have a 95% detection rate—that’s the highest of any security vendor And the lowest number of false positives (0.0001%)***KM: This is just the anti-spam stat. What stat do we have for our overall effectiveness?***This is, by far, the largest, most sophisticated intelligence network on the planet.It processes over 8 billion email messages daily and gathers malicious code data from 130 million systemsThe Network updates every 5-10 Minutes from 240,000 Sensors In over 200 CountriesThere are more than 35,000 vulnerabilities in the Symantec vulnerability databaseThere are 5 million decoy accounts in the Symantec Probe NetworkThere are 4 Symantec Security Operations Centerslocated in Australia, UK, USA, IndiaThere are 11 Security Response Centers in the USA, Australia, Canada, India, China, IrelandWhat all of this means is that if there is a malicious attack about to hit you, we know about it first. We block it, we keep it from affecting your business, and we tell you how to take action. It’s about prioritized risk and response, and our intelligence network keeps you protected and tells you what to do first. There simply is no approach that’s faster or more thorough than ours. This Network is the main reason that 99% of the Fortune 500 & 1000 utilize our products. This is what makes all the difference between having security software and knowing that your information is protected 24/7.

You may pull something from the most current threat deck for this slide. The objective here is that we demonstrate a current example where we used Skeptic to protect our customers with zero hour protection.Tribute to Anikornikova Virus – mass mailerOn September 9, 2010 Symantec .cloud Skeptic technology proactively identified and started blocking a new mass mailer worm. This new worm, W32.Imsolk.B@mm, with its “Here you have” subject line was a throwback to the types of worms we used to see years ago and used infected machines to send out more copies to the victims’ entire address book. Skeptic is Symantec .cloud’s proprietary heuristic technology for malware and spam filtering. It uses an arsenal of unique and patent-protected technologies to deliver accurate detection of malware including application reputation, junk code analysis, and link following. Skeptic is a core component of Symantec.cloud’s email, web, and instant messaging security services. Not only did the Symantec .cloud Email Security offering, prevent a single copy from reaching any of our clients, the heuristic rule that triggered the block had actually been in place since 2008. Clients of our Web Security service were also protected due to our converged threat analysis. For example, if a customer received a copy of the virus via Web mail and clicked the link, we were able to block the downloader upon its first interaction with our Web service. This occurs because the hyperlink is copied across from the Skeptic email towers where the threat first emerged thus ensuring that the link does not operate when detected via the Web.All about scale – 2 cloud vendors beat 85% of traditional security AV vendors – validates the model – sheer scale and volume
The news isn’t all bad – there is a tremendous opportunity for Symantec if we can move quickly
