The Portuguese maternity hospital Maternidade Dr. Alfredo da Costa (MAC) is very proud of its latest twins. The two babies have matured quickly and are already helping the hospital solve its most pressing data security and data protection needs, while reducing administration time and costs. The babies’ names are Symantec Protection Suite and Symantec Backup Exec. They are also successfully catching thousands of viruses and demanding less performance compared to the previous security solution that was in the hospital.
