Securing and Managing an Information-Driven World

Customers of all sizes are faced with one essential challenge: the need to secure and manage an enormous amount of information. We all live and work in an information-driven world. Information is the lifeblood of modern business and, increasingly, of modern life. Each year, the amount of information we create increases exponentially and securing and managing our information-driven world becomes even more important and challenging. Customers are increasingly concerned about how to secure and manage their increasing amounts of information – from digital photos to business critical data.
Securing and managing all this information is a tough job.
Symantec is a global leader in providing security, storage and systems management solutions to help our customers – from consumers and small businesses to the largest global organizations – secure and manage their information against more risks at more points, more completely and efficiently than any other company. Our company’s unique focus is to eliminate risks to information, technology and processes independent of the device, platform, interaction or location.

Positioned for Growth

In our core businesses – consumer, endpoint security, storage management and backup – we utilize our market leadership positions to accelerate new growth opportunities. As the industry matures, we pair new technologies with our core solutions to deliver integrated solutions that address evolving customer needs.
As the threat landscape evolves and customers shift to adapt to new technologies and technology consumption, we are investing in future growth areas such as mobile, virtualization and SaaS that will help to reduce cost and complexity for our customers. Symantec leverages internal R&D, acquisitions and partnerships to accelerate our long-term strategy.

Protect completely

With Symantec, customers can protect more of their information and its technology infrastructure, in greater depth, wherever information is stored or used. From securing a consumer’s online identity and interactions to protecting an organization’s mission-critical data, Symantec offers the leading and best-of-breed security, backup and recovery, data availability and data loss prevention products.

Manage easily

As a platform-independent software company without bias to an individual operating system or hardware environment, Symantec helps customers manage more technologies with greater efficiency, on more platforms – even in virtual environments – than any other company. With multi-platform software and a worldwide delivery and support infrastructure, Symantec helps customers optimize technology investments throughout their lifetimes.

Control automatically

With the most comprehensive portfolio of security and management software, Symantec helps customers control more processes, automatically, whether on the home PC or in the corporate data center. From the market leading all-in-one Norton security products to an integrated enterprise software portfolio, Symantec helps standardize and automate the way people and organizations enforce policies — from online safety to company-wide IT compliance.

Global Perspective. Global Leadership.

Since its inception in 1982, Symantec has grown into a Fortune 500 company through a combination of internal development, strategic acquisition and partnering with industry leaders. At every step in the company’s growth we have expanded both our technological expertise and our understanding of customer needs. Our ability to successfully integrate internally developed with technologies we acquire has kept Symantec at the front of its industry and enabled us to provide best-of-breed solutions for millions of corporate and individual customers in more than 48 countries. It is what has earned the company almost every major technology award and top-tier rankings from industry analysts.
