Symantec provides security, storage, and systems management software for businesses and consumers. The company's applications handle such functions as virus protection, PC maintenance, data backup and recovery, intrusion detection, data loss prevention, spam control, content filtering, and remote server management.
Carvir makes behavior-based threat detection software to protect data from the types of advanced malware, exploits, drive-bys and script-based attacks that evade outdated, signature based anti-virus technology and sandboxing solutions in Windows, Apple and Linux environments.
