Vehere PacketWorker - a better substitute for Symantec Security Analytics


In the wake of recent news about Broadcom acquiring Symantec has raised questions about the future for Symantec customers and partners. Broadcom has expressed their views that they will concentrate on Global 2000 organizations with their endpoint security, web security, and DLP solutions. Broadcom has additionally flagged their expectation to scale down investments in the Symantec email security, threat intelligence, and managed services portfolio, and that they plan significant reductions in R&D, sales and customer support. Current Symantec enterprise customers are faced with a serious predicament. The acquisition is a call-to-action for customers and partners to re-evaluate their security program.
