Symantec Corp (SYMC.O) is acquiring Israeli cybersecurity startup Fireglass, the company said on Thursday, in a small deal designed to boost its products that protect corporate email and web browsing from threats.

Symantec is paying an undisclosed sum for the Tel Aviv-based company of about 40 employees. Fireglass specializes in an area of security called “browser isolation,” a technology that creates virtual websites allowing users to browse any content without having viruses touch their network.
