Symantec moves to boost endpoint security "Symantec officials hope to deliver a stronger suite of endpoint security solutions by acquiring Sygate Technologies.
Company officials announced plans Tuesday to buy Sygate, a provider of endpoint compliance solutions. Endpoint security technology ensures that all devices connected to a network � desktops, laptops, servers, and mobile devices � are running the appropriate security solutions, are configured correctly, and possess up-to-date patches.
Sygate�s Universal Network Access Control technology will complement Symantec�s presence on the endpoint to create a holistic product suite that addresses the security, compliance, and remediation requirements of large enterprises, Symantec officials said. The acquisition is expected to close shortly after receiving customary regulatory approvals."
