Communications Service Providers (CSPs) need to align IT strategies with their overall business objectives. Their IT data centers have grown explosively in recent years due to both organic growth and acquisitions. At the same time, CSPs need to comply with increasing regulations to protect and secure access to private information. These dynamics have introduced a layer of complexity to their environment. Consolidation, standardization and virtualization technologies, as well as IT sourcing from the Cloud, are key projects Symantec is working with CSPs worldwide to reduce complexity and cost. These solutions help improve innovation and time to market while complying with global and local laws and regulations.
