Symantec Corp. announced it has signed a definitive agreement to acquire Relicore, Inc., a provider of data center change and configuration management solutions. Relicore's flagship product, Relicore Clarity, automatically discovers, maps and tracking changes to application and server components in real time. The transaction is expected to close in mid-February 2006.

Relicore's Clarity product discovers all applications running on managed servers, tracks key configuration information, maps the dependencies of those servers and applications, and keeps all of that information up to date on a real-time basis. This allows customers to replace the time-consuming and error-prone process of manually collecting and maintaining asset inventories, and accelerates troubleshooting efforts by helping IT managers identify when a particular change to the server or application environment has created a problem. This capability is crucial given that, according to IDC, 78 percent of server downtime is due to infrastructure changes. In addition, customers apply Relicore's Clarity to more effectively and efficiently manage their compliance with regulatory requirements, such as Sarbanes-Oxley, by discovering and mapping the resources associated with financial reporting systems and ensuring the policies associated with those systems are continuously enforced.
