If there is one message that Symantec would like you, the analyst community, to recognise and take on board right now, it is this: We are not slowing down in the least. Symantec has real momentum and conviction around where it wants and plans to be – and nowhere is this better demonstrated than in our recent acquisition of NitroDesk, which totally reaffirms our commitment to mobile.

This is a great purchase for Symantec and our customers, enabling us to integrate NitroDesk’s mature email application with Symantec’s existing app-wrapping, device management, threat protection, data loss prevention, authentication and identity technologies – thus delivering a solution that improves business collaboration and out-of-office productivity.

At the same time, you can expect further mobile enhancements to be rolled out in the coming months to...

They are young, bright, vibrant, talented and the task they have been handed is a daunting one: pitting their wits against an enemy that is growing rapidly in number, sophistication and daring -– an enemy that operates unseen in the dark areas of the Internet, from right across the globe.

Last week we announced Symantec Data Insight 4.0 to help IT administrators take back control of dark data.

Symantec Data Insight helps organizations improve unstructured data governance through actionable...

Imagine half the value of your business being buried out of sight; or that value residing on the devices your employees took home at night, possibly to be lost or damaged. It’s a sobering thought—and one that’s all too real in today’s digital world.

According to the Symantec 2012 State of Information Report, almost half (46 percent) of an organisation’s information is being stored outside of its own data centre on devices beyond the corporate firewall. That could be anything from confidential customer information and sales opportunities, to crucial emails and financial reports. This ‘information sprawl’ is like setting a match to your business.

In the report, information sprawl was identified as the culprit in more than one-...
