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.

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.
