Symantec is a global leader in providing software, appliances, and services to help individuals, small and mid-sized businesses, and large enterprises assure the security, availability, and integrity of their most important asset — information.
Enterprises and consumers need to keep their infrastructures up and running 24×7. They need to be able to access information anytime and anywhere. That means that their critical systems must be up and running all the time.
Therefore, it is important that they protect the physical systems, the operating environments, and the applications – across all tiers of their infrastructure. They must protect a broad range of information types – from email to business documents to digital photos to audio and video files. And, they must ensure that the interactions – the connections, the collaborative environments, and the movement of data while in use – are protected.
Symantec is focused on helping customers protect their infrastructures, their information, and their interactions.
Headquartered in Cupertino, Calif., Symantec has operations in 40 countries.
Symantec is leading the consumer industry with “Security 2.0″, the company’s vision for delivering end-to-end security for consumers and rebuilding confidence online. With Security 2.0, Symantec is focused on securing increasingly sensitive online consumer interactions, such as financial transactions and instant messaging, as well as increasingly malicious threats and crimeware. Symantec will deliver on this vision over the next several years via a combination of consumer client-side technologies, online infrastructure and key partnerships. Recently announced products like Norton Confidential, which will include new transaction security, and Norton 360, a new all-in-one subscription service, are first steps.
