November 06, 2018 / Sean Michael Kerner
Symantec continues to grow its portfolio of cyber-security products and services, most recently via the acquisitions of Javelin Networks and Appthority. Privately held Javelin Networks develops technology to help protect enterprises from attacks that target the widely deployed Microsoft Active Directory system. Privately held Appthority is in the business of mobile application security analysis. "Javelin Networks' technology is planned to be rebranded and provided as a stand-alone product," Sri Sundaralingam, head of product marketing for enterprise security products at Symantec, told eWEEK. "Appthority will be integrated within Symantec Endpoint Protection Mobile [SEP Mobile]."
