“We’re seeing a huge opportunity in the IoT security market,” said John Vigouroux, managing partner and president of Frost Data Capital.

“We’re excited to work with Symantec to bring cutting-edge, relevant security analytics solutions to market rapidly, in order to prevent next generation cyber-attacks on corporate infrastructures. Symantec brings to the table world-class security technology, global presence and strategic relationships that will be instrumental to launching these startups.”

Further complicating security efforts, criminals are increasingly leveraging legitimate technology, like enterprise software and corporate management tools, as well as emerging technology, such as, connected devices, to carry out attacks.
