Symantec

Strategic Vision Powered by ACI and Secure Data Center

Company: Symantec

Industry: Software

Location: Mountain View, California

Company Size: 19,000


Challenge

Among one of the largest and leading software companies in the world, Symantec is the global leader in cybersecurity. The company recognized the need to deploy a next-generation secure data center anchored by a software-defined network (SDN) to deliver on its strategic business vision and provide exceptional customer experiences worldwide.

Solution

Symantec chose Cisco ACI as its SDN solution to establish a modern, agile environment that enables it to bring IT resources in-house and meet its business challenges for the next decade.

Outcomes

Cisco ACI is helping to make Symantec's operations more efficient and effective, while delivering significant cost savings and improving security. Using automation, application templates, and orchestration, IT staff can better manage network resources and IT operations. Automation reduces human errors and reduces the time needed to provision data center resources to support development.

The excitement of the software-defined approach is that it allows us to move at the speed of business and with Cisco ACI we are a true enabler.
