What Would Symantec Do About Mobile Device Management?

Since Nearly half of the revenue of Altiris comes from services business, this acquisition brings Symantec into security services business for serving enterprise market.
Certainly it makes sense for Symantec to move in remote end point management services business, and combine its security products with Altiris PC management products. But what is still missing is a mobile device management piece, because the mobile device market is poised for large growth, as Smart Phone platforms become mainstream and UMPCs are launched. While Symantec has been moving into the mobile security space, it still does not have any mobile device management piece. Would Symantec build that part of the equation or is another acquisition in order?
