Symantec Research Labs (SRL)

Symantec’s research labs involve leading experts in security and availability who are busy building innovative new products and technologies across their businesses. The efforts include ongoing collaboration with research facilities, government agencies and universities around the world. Their core research includes short-, medium- and long-term projects that are ultimately designed to result in new intellectual property that can be used to build actual products.

In other words, Symantec’s labs are innovative but focused on real-world solutions. They also engage in government-funded research in both the U.S. and the UK. A startup-style group, they focus on lightweight products in emerging growth categories and ship quickly to pilot customers, with the goal of transferring these releases into the product group for eventual commercialization.

Businesses have been building incubators and innovation-focused research labs for a long time, but tech companies have taken it to a whole new level in the last few years. Some of them are “skunkworks” labs, operating in secret and attempting wild ideas that may or may not work. (Think Amazon’s delivery drones.) Others are less secretive, but still designed to move quickly and seek creative solutions for problems that impact companies and consumers in big ways. This slideshow features five examples of corporate labs doing interesting work today, as identified by Acronis.
