Bharti Airtel (Airtel) and Symantec Corp announced a strategic partnership to serve the growing cyber security requirements of businesses in India, the partnership will aim to provide protection and prevention of online threats in an increasingly digitally connected world.

Under the terms of the agreement, Airtel will be the exclusive Cyber Security Services partner for Symantec in India, and will distribute Symantec’s enterprise security software.

Gopal Vittal, MD & CEO (India & South Asia), Bharti Airtel said, “Increasingly sophisticated cyber threats with potential to disrupt business continuity are the new normal in today’s digitally connected world. Enterprises need to guard against these emerging threats and Airtel, with its experience in serving businesses with integrated connectivity solutions, is uniquely positioned to serve them.
