Ernst & Young, Symantec will go to market jointly with cyber risk management solutions

Ernst & Young (EY) has inked a strategic partnership with Symantec on data protection and cyber risk management for enterprises.

Under the terms of the agreement, EY and Symantec will go to market jointly with Symantec’s Integrated Cyber Defense platform. The business outcomes from the EY data protection solution are supported by Symantec’s information protection technologies, integrating capabilities in data loss prevention (DLP), cloud access security broker (CASB), information-centric tagging (ICT), encryption (ICE) and analytics (ICA) into a unified enterprise solution.
