Software security developer Symantec introduced a new partnership program to round out its security appliances, officials announced Tuesday.

The message security solutions compatibility track ensures that software used on Symantec's security appliances is compatible with its own product line.

"By integrating select, complementary third-party products with our key messaging security solutions, Symantec and its technology partners can work together to improve security and compliance, simplify complexity and increase [return on investment] on security investments for our customers," Manuel Gonzalez, Symantec director of business development, said in a statement.

Six vendors have joined the new Symantec Technology Partner Program subgroup: ZixCorp (Quote, Chart), PGP Corp., Avinti, Authentica, Voltage Security and Vontu.

With today's partnerships in place, Symantec can deliver its Mail Security 8200-series servers with more than its stock anti-spam, antivirus and management applications.
