Symantec has begun to transition toward new branding that incorporates the check mark of Verisign, having completed its acquisition of the company. In a statement, Symantec said the new identity would include an amended corporate logo and a new version of the Norton consumer logo. “The external global rollout will begin in the December quarter,” the company says. Following the acquisition of Verisign’s identity and authentication business, Symantec plans to integrate some technologies. This includes providing Verisign’s SSL certificate services with Symantec’s Critical System Protection through the sales channel; aligning the VeriSign SSL and client PKI authentications services with Symantec Protection Centre; expanding Symantec’s Data Loss Prevention solutions with Data Insight technology with Verisign’s identity security services; and providing the Verisign VIP authentication service with Norton products and Symantec desktop clients. “The combination of Symantec’s leading security solutions with VeriSign’s security products, services and recognition as the most trusted brand online, uniquely positions Symantec to drive the adoption of identity security and restore trust online unlike any other company,” says CEO and president Enrique Salem.
