Symantec (SYMC +4.7%) closes with a healthy gain after the WSJ reports the company's Altiris device management/configuration software unit is on the block and drawing P-E interest. Symantec bought Altiris, which competes with ServiceNow (NOW +4.4%) and whose tools manage everything from servers to smartphones, for $800M in '07. The WSJ adds a sale of Symantec's Veritas storage software business, the subject of occasional speculation, is unlikely. (Morgan Stanley upgrade)
