Symantec, CSC Join Forces For Managed Services

System integrator Computer Sciences Corp. (CSC) and security vendor Symantec joined forces this week to offer end-to-end managed security services.

Under the deal, unveiled Thursday, Symantec will bolster CSC's security solutions with security monitoring services, including intrusion detection, security device management, and data analysis and correlation.

In exchange, CSC will deliver Symantec solutions to its customer base, and will work with Symantec managed security service providers to sell the expanded solution to new companies as well.

The partnership involves no product; only services.

According to Grant Geyer, vice president of global managed security services for Symantec, the alliance enables the Cupertino, Calif.-based vendor to reach a much broader base of customers, and could serve as a "bellwether" of similar deals down the road.
