Symantec Develops Tomorrow's Security Monitoring System Today

In one of the more interesting recent articles published in a mainstream U.S. newspaper about the IT industry, The Washington Post has profiled Symantec's managed-security service headquartered in Alexandria, Virginia. According to the article:

The four-year-old operation, which includes special monitoring and "data mining" technology, was created by a local start-up called Riptech. Last year, California-based Symantec paid about $350 million to buy Riptech and three other electronic-security firms (Recourse Technologies, SecurityFocus and Mountain Wave) that had developed proprietary anti-hacker technology. Symantec merged Riptech's operations with its own and now has four similar centers -- in Britain, Japan, Germany and San Antonio.
