Manhattan SC - Parallelism

Q 17. The network security team is responsible for detecting new viruses and the creation of software patches to block those viruses.

This sentence is wrong. Also, I'm confused with the explanation given. (I was thinking in different way). Can you please suggest me the correct sentence?

I am no expert...but I would write it like this:

The network security team is responsible for the detection of viruses and the creation of software patches to block those viruses.

Let me know if I am wrong.

The network security team is responsible for two things i.e.

1.for detecting viruses
2.for creating software patches

Here For X and For Y is used where x must be parallel to y.
