For any form of company control on a larger scale where threats can have a very detrimental effect but not suited to SME scenarios was cost factor would be a key component and not require as much automation.

Symantec Web Security Service monitors and filters network traffic to protect web servers from cyberattacks. Its single dashboard view, excellent UI/UX, and easy DLP integration make it a market leader. Excellent sandboxing for safe browsing in restricted IT networks. Threat categorization and stateful SSL description of web traffic to identify dynamic threat vectors. However, alerts and notifications only work quickly when large-scale DDoS attacks happen.
