In August 2010, Symantec acquired VeriSign’s security business which included the Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) and Code Signing Certificate Services, the Managed Public Key Infrastructure (MPKI) Services, the VeriSign Trust Seal, the VeriSign Identity Protection (VIP) Authentication Service and the VIP Fraud Detection Service (FDS). With the acquisition, Symantec extends its strategy to create the most trusted brand for protecting information and identities online.
