Sonda Procwork, the Brazilian unit of Chilean IT systems integrator Sonda, will partner with US security firm Symantec (Nasdaq: SYMC) to offer integrated data protection solutions and services in Brazil, the companies announced in a statement.
Sonda and Symantec attributed the partnership to growing demand for security in the corporate sector. Greater reliance on e-commerce, mobile applications and cloud computing have driven companies to invest more in preventing data leaks, analyzing weaknesses and protecting core business processes.
Under the deal, Symantec will train Sonda employees to sell and support Symantec products.
The companies plan to package license and equipment sales with services such as training, risk assessment, monitoring and IT management.
Sonda has been in the Brazilian market for more than 20 years, with 31 offices across the country.
