Part of Symantec's main European campus in Dublin houses Symantec Security Response labs, which analyses samples of malware and pushes out antivirus signatures to customers. The Symantec Dublin campus at Blanchardstown also contains the company's anti-malware product manufacturing facility.
"We manufacture and distribute six-and-a-half-million yellow boxes [of software] a year here, in 20 different languages, to Europe, the Middle East and Africa," said Austin McCabe, Symantec's European managing director.
The facility also houses helpdesk support, customer response and technical support, as well as the e-mail security group, and product and marketing translation teams. The total employee headcount fluctuates but remains close to 900, said McCabe.
