Symantec Research Labs

Symantec Research Labs was formed in June 2002 to secure the world's computing devices and information through novel security and privacy paradigms.

Our Mission

As Symantec's global research organization, Symantec Research Labs (SRL) is a research group focused on driving trust and safety in an online world by creating new paradigms to enable digital security and privacy. SRL has played a leading role in exploring many cutting-edge technologies now commercialized across Symantec's many product areas. Such technologies from the group include targeted attack protection, reputation based security, industry-leading rootkit protection, cloud based security services, and some of the industry's earliest behavioral protection technologies. SRL is actively pursuing research with many partners in universities and beyond.

Digital Privacy and the Right to be Protected

With our digital privacy at risk in unprecedented ways, there’s new urgency to find ways to safeguard people's digital life.

Symantec Graduate Fellowship

Symantec will award Graduate Fellowships to outstanding Ph.D. students. A key goal of the program is to fund innovative research that has real-world value, in areas where Symantec conducts business. These areas include, but are not limited to: security, privacy, networking, systems, machine learning, and human-computer interaction.
