CA -- Symantec Corporation (NasdaqGS: SYMC)
announced an agreement to acquire Lindon, UT-based Altiris for $830 million in cash.

programs a commodity, Symantec has been under pressure to come up with a
strategy to expand and diversify its security offerings.
With the acquisition of Altiris, Symantec will be able to diversify into IT
network management products that address security, storage, remote managed
services and client management.
