Collaboration aims to strengthen cyber security initiatives as the foundation for digital transformation

TOKYO, April 12, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Symantec Corp., one of the world’s leading cyber security companies, and NTT Security, the specialized security company of NTT Group, have announced their intention to enter into a strategic partnership to bolster web security services offerings to customers across the cloud, mobile and on-premises.

By planning to bring together Symantec’s Cloud-Delivered Web Security Services and CASB (Cloud Access Security Broker) technologies, key elements of the Symantec Integrated Cyber Defense Platform, with NTT Security’s threat detection and advanced analytics capabilities, the companies intend to enhance security services and provide customers flexibility and efficiency in their digital transformation journey.
