Founded in 1982 by a team of computer scientists, Symantec has evolved from an antivirus software company to a global, Fortune 500 company whose mission is to help customers of all sizes secure and manage information. The company is governed by a customer driven philosophy that emphasizes listening, responsiveness and continuous improvement.

Today, Symantec finds itself in an industry that is defined by tough competition, as well as an ever-changing variety of sophisticated security threats directed at its customers. To compete in this dynamic environment, Symantec has embarked on a strategy to streamline and simplify the company around its customers. The transformation began with a holistic review—by new CEO Steve Bennett—of the entire company’s operations, including financials, organizational structure, product portfolio and service offerings, as well as go-to-market strategy and tactics.

A key aspect of the transformation also included streamlining Symantec, to deliver improved performance for partners and customers, and to drive organic growth rather than through mergers and acquisitions.
