Symantec to Acquire Company-i

Symantec Corp. announced it has signed a definitive agreement to acquire Company-i, a UK-based professional services firm that specializes in addressing key challenges associated with operating and managing a data center in the financial services industry.  The acquisition furthers Symantec Global Services’ capability to help clients manage IT risk and cost, particularly in the data center.

Corporate boards and executive management teams are focusing on reducing operational risk to ensure resilient business operations, trusted brands, and compliance with evolving regulations.

With data centers now managing petabytes of data, Symantec is increasingly asked by clients for assistance architecting and running these complex IT infrastructures in a way that reduces operational risks.

“Symantec’s Global Services strategy around managing IT risk makes them a trusted advisor for addressing critical data center challenges,” said Mark Pennycook, CEO, Company-i.
