Symantec also licensing technology from network monitor Narus

Symantec is acquiring 65 security engineers from Boeing as a part of a deal to beef up its expertise in Big Data, prior to a split between its security and storage divisions later this year.

As part of the deal Big Yellow is also licensing technology from Boeing's Narus security division, which develops network-monitoring technologies used by customers including the US government.

Boeing bought Narus in 2010, four years after the security tools developer was dragged into controversy with claims by a whistle-blower that its technology was used by AT&T to fulfil the National Security Agency’s warrantless wiretap program, Bloomberg notes.

Terms of the deal, announced Monday, weren’t disclosed but Symantec chief technology officer Amit Mital spins a line on how Narus' big data analytics will "help our customers make informed decisions about how to prevent, detect and remediate attacks".
