Symantec and VMware announced five new security integrations with the VMware cloud infrastructure suite that are designed to provide protection for virtual and cloud environments along with operational cost savings.

With the tighter integration, Symantec enables the companies’ joint customers to protect their virtual infrastructures and business applications with data loss prevention, IT risk and compliance, data center protection, security information and event management (SIEM) and end-point protection.

"The unique security concerns of the cloud extend well beyond malware protection,” Raghu Raghuram, senior vice president and general manager of cloud infrastructure and management at VMware, said in a statement. “The integration of Symantec products with the VMware cloud infrastructure suite will offer fundamentally new security capabilities to accelerate the ability of customers to quickly and safely realize the benefits of cloud computing."

Symantec and VMware say they will continue to collaborate to ensure that customers have the security and compliance controls they need for cloud deployments, both on-premises and off-premises.
