Symantec is acquiring Gideon Technologies to extend Symantec's security portfolio with a leading Security Content Automation Protocol (SCAP) validated configuration and vulnerability assessment solution and to enhance its ability to serve the needs of public sector customers. The transaction is expected to close by the end of the March quarter and is subject to customary closing conditions. The financial terms of the acquisition are not being disclosed.

SCAP is a suite of specifications that standardize the format and nomenclature by which security software products communicate software flaw and security configuration information. It is used to automate vulnerability and patch checking, technical control compliance activities and security measurement. This standard is a requirement of the U.S. federal government which represents the largest and most diverse computing environment in the world. Interoperability and sharing data within this environment is essential to address the evolving threat landscape.
