Symantec Launches New Logo with VeriSign Check

Symantec Corporation, known for its software security products, recently released its new design company logo.

The previous logo was created in 2000, and since then Symantec has widened its portfolio and recently acquired the VeriSign (News - Alert) check mark for $1.28 billion along with VeriSign’s security business, which includes the (Secure Sockets Layer) SSL Certificate Services, the Public Key Infrastructure (PKI) Services, the VeriSign Trust Services and the VeriSign Identity Protection (VIP) Authentication Service.

The VeriSign check mark is the most recognized symbol, associated with trust, particularly in websites. When consumers see the logo, they know they are accessing a safe site or that their shopping will be safe, encouraging them to purchase more online.

The new logo with a circle and checkmark will represent the unified resources and will enhance Symantec’s (News - Alert) recognition in the industry and market segments. Symantec provides industry solutions including security from threats and information thefts, data loss, data protection, manage PC systems, antivirus, anti-malware, anti-spam, backup and recovery of data, systems and email, security management, storage management, Endpoint security and management, virtualization management, and web security among others, to businesses of all sizes. It is more popular under the Norton suite of security products.

Symantec, said, "We believe in today's connected world that the Symantec check mark will stand for confidence, the same way the Nike swoosh stands for fitness. The new logo signals Symantec's vision to bring together identity and device security, information protection, context and relevance and the benefits from leveraging the cloud - all critical enablers of confidence in a connected world."

VeriSign added, "This transaction allows VeriSign to focus on the growing Internet infrastructure services business, where we expect to build on our expertise and record of success as the longtime operator of the .com and .net domain infrastructures. We believe Symantec's leading position as the premier end-to-end security provider will enable them to better serve our authentication customers and accelerate market growth."
