Abstract

Today's technology industry is a highly competitive environment where innovation is rapidly evolving and new technologies continue to revolutionize the way we learn, work and play. Our lives run on information and it's everywhere -devices, applications and systems. With all of the challenges our customers are facing in securing and managing information, we believe that it's no longer enough to just be inventive. That's why at Symantec, innovation is defined by a simple formula-Innovation =  Invention + Impact. We don't innovate for innovation's sake, we focus on innovating to solve our customers most pressing challenges.
