Symantec GSR Lab in Pune

Vincent Weafer

Symantec India recently inaugurated its Global Security Response (GSR) lab at its centre of innovation in Pune. This lab will provide real-time monitoring and response to threats world-wide. The eighth of its kind in world and the first in India, the lab will protect the company’s global customers from a variety of security threats. Vincent Weafer, Senior Director- Development, Symantec Security Response; Vishal Dhupar, Managing Director, Symantec India and Anil Chakravarthy, Vice President-India Technical Operations, Symantec Corporation were present at the occasion.

This lab is part of Symantec’s Global Intelligence Network that includes researchers across the world collecting information about online fraud, malicious code and security risks. They analyse this data to assess threats and formulate appropriate responses so that real-time updates can be developed for Symantec products and delivered to users around the world in the form of definitions. Symantec provides detailed intelligence on real-time security incidents gathered from more than 40,000 sensors in over 180 countries.

Cyber crime is being conducted with financial motives today. “Our aim through this lab is to create content which will ultimately protect customers,” says Vincent Weafer. The security centre exists within Symantec’s original R&D centre at Pune. It will address urgent security concerns by delivering early warning solutions that provide a thorough analysis of Internet security threat.
