Symantec reportedly in talks to split into storage and security units

Taking a cue from Hewlett-Packard and eBay, Symantec is said to be in talks to carve out the company into two entities.

An announcement of the split, which is supported by CEO Michael Brown, could be made in a few weeks, according to the report.
