Symantec Completes Acquisition of BindView

    Online News published in DMReview.com
January 10, 2006

Symantec Corp. announced that it completed its acquisition of BindView Development Corporation, a global provider of agentless IT security compliance software. The acquisition agreement between Symantec and BindView was announced on Oct. 3, 2005.

Agent-based and agentless policy compliance solutions are complementary capabilities in the IT environment, and they address different customer needs. Symantec's agent-based technology architecture offers full-featured compliance and vulnerability management and is well suited for enterprises that have complex and heterogeneous IT environments. BindView's agentless architecture, which is less IT staff-intensive, is ideal for organizations faced with managing a large number of systems that are not centrally located, such as Windows desktop machines deployed throughout the enterprise.

Together, Symantec and BindView offer companies a choice of industry-leading agent-based or agent-less solutions that will enable them to define, control and sustain their IT compliance requirements. The combined companies expect to offer the most comprehensive end-to-end solution for policy and vulnerability management from a single vendor.
