Dell has announced plans to integrate Symantec's security software into its Email Management Services software-as-a-service (SaaS) portfolio.
The software will add boundary encryption of emails, blocking of spam and inappropriate content, system management tools for administrators to check workflow and system load, as well as full virus screening using heuristics and signature-based approaches.
"As Dell and Symantec team up to bolster state-of-the-art hosted email security, continuity and archiving services, new and existing customers can benefit from heightened protection and expanded hosted offerings," said Mark Bilger, vice president of the Services Product Group at Dell Services.
"By combining the individual strengths and expertise of Dell Services and Symantec Hosted Services, we are excited to bring customers and channel partners a best-of-breed portfolio that features robust, industry leading functionalities."
Dell said this it is looking at further acquisitions and co-operative agreements on global services and regional markets such as China.
