Symantec to buy AppStream

Security firm Symantec signs agreement to acquire AppStream, whose technology it is using in its Software Virtualization Solution Pro.

Symantec is acquiring AppStream, a maker of application streaming technology.

Symantec already uses AppStream's technology in its Software Virtualization Solution (SVS) Pro. Using application streaming enables end users to perform functions by accessing parts of a software program over the network as needed, without having the program fully installed on the client computer.

Terms of the deal were not disclosed. The transaction is expected to close by the end of June, Symantec says.
