Amazon Web Services (AWS) has announced that cybersecurity firm Symantec, has chosen its cloud platform to deliver cloud security to the company's global customers, and will now be Symantec's strategic infrastructure provider for a lot of the company's cloud workloads.
According to Amazon, the relationship between the two companies will be both long-term and bi-directional, with Symantec "making a major operational move to AWS".
Amazon's comprehensive cloud capabilities such as data services, analytics, and machine learning has allowed Symantec to quickly deliver security software and tools to its customers while maintaining data protection.
This announcement comes just about a month after Microsoft revealed that Symantec would use Microsoft Azure to power its Norton antivirus software, suggesting that perhaps Symantec is splitting its business between the two cloud computing services, as reported by The Seattle Times.
The partnership between AWS and Symantec is likely just one of many more announcements coming from Amazon in the coming week with the AWS conference, re:Invent, starting on Monday.
