Symantec Offers Webcast on Consumer Security

CUPERTINO, Calif. - Feb 6, 2006 - Symantec Corp. (Nasdaq: SYMC) today announced it will host a webcast discussing the evolution of consumer security and new strategies for ensuring consumer protection and productivity. The one-hour webcast will be held on Thursday, Feb. 9, 2006 at 9 a.m. PT.

Enrique Salem, Symantec senior vice president, Security Products and Solutions, will lead the webcast. The presentation will explore the current computing environment and will discuss consumers' needs and demands, the increasingly challenging threat landscape, changing security requirements, and today's evolving environment. He will also discuss how Symantec will address this new environment, followed by a question and answer session.

"Consumers are leveraging the Internet and generating more irreplaceable digital content every day," said Salem. "At the same time, however, threats of identity theft and fraud are eroding consumers' confidence in ecommerce, online banking, and Web use in general. Helping restore trust will require a more innovative approach to online security that protects consumers' systems, their digital content, and their transactions quickly, easily, and cost-effectively. This webcast will discuss Symantec's strategy to address these challenges and deliver the solutions consumers need in order to enjoy safe and productive online experiences both today and tomorrow."
