AllSeen and All-Embracing Alliance for Symantec


Symantec is an AllSeen Alliance Community Member, one of the world’s largest software companies and a leader in security, backup and availability solutions. Roxane Divol, SVP Product and Services Acceleration Group for Symantec, shares why the company decided to join the AllSeen Alliance and how they plan to contribute to AllJoyn for a connected experience that will change the Internet of Things.

I’m delighted to report that Symantec has now added its full weight as a Community Member to the AllSeen Alliance open source consortium – the broadest cross-industry effort to address fundamental use cases, in order to accelerate the reach and impact of the Internet of Everything or Internet of Things (IoT).

The Alliance intends to achieve this goal by providing interoperability across all devices, operating systems, embedded software, utilising any form of connectivity, under a common language for communication. This should drive the widespread adoption of products, systems and services that support the IoT through an open, universal development framework.

This open source framework provides the core building blocks developers need to address discoverability, connectivity, security and management of dynamic, ad-hoc networks between nearby devices. Using the Alliance’s AllJoyn technology would help make the brand into a sign of device interoperability. Though numerous use cases are focused on the home environment, AllJoyn protocols enable extension of interoperable services to the car and enterprise, too.

Why does this have such appeal to us? Primarily because that framework, based on AllJoyn, will enable companies and individuals to create interoperable products that can discover, connect and interact directly with other nearby devices, systems and services, regardless of transport layer, device type, platform, operating system or brand.
