Unilever, PepsiCo, Time Inc. They are all part of my journey as a marketer in big parent companies with multiple, unique brands.  How do you relate parent master brands with their portfolio?  Do you intertwine or keep identities separate? Do you use multiple logos or one identifying image?  It usually comes down to long-term strategy and the brand perceptions you hope to evolve, but they are choices that require intense commitment, because no study can point you to one “right” decision.   And with Symantec, it’s an opportunity like no other.

Symantec has two brands, one identity, and countless opportunities. That is, if we can communicate our unique value - right now - as the partner to turn to for information protection.  Here’s the challenge. Norton, known for security, is a brand with strong awareness with consumers.  Symantec, has less awareness but a solid reputation in information security and management, which is a big opportunity in...

This blog was authored by Con Mallon, Sr. Director of Product Management, Mobility Solutions, at Symantec.

Symantec recently published an updated version of Norton Spot in Google Play (US-English only), and with it, turned the traditional Android mobile security model on its head with a new take on how we use our Mobile Insight technology.

Norton Spot is running a beta app that scans for problematic apps before you download them to your device. There are many mobile security products for Android, all of which take a similar approach when it comes to scanning apps for malware and privacy: the customer downloads and installs the app from an app store and at the point of installation, the mobile security product scans the app and notifies the user as to whether it is malicious. There is also a smaller subset of these products, including Norton...

Ubiquity, freedom, possibility: what it means to protect information.

When information is safe, that’s when the possibilities of that information are unleashed.

At Symantec, we are in a unique position to enable businesses to create, build, and succeed.

More than merely keeping attackers at bay, Symantec allows information to be used, shared, and created free from the kinds of worry and apprehension that stifle innovation.

Our understanding of the threat landscape necessitates a new conversation about holistic information protection. This is the conversation we started with our new “Do It All” video, and one we hope to continue throughout the coming months. We encourage you to continue telling us your experiences, goals, and thoughts about information protection. After all, this is a conversation and not a monologue, and the greatest human enterprises are only possible...

By Garrett Jones, Vice President of Global Channel Operations

I had a great time at last week’s Symantec Partner Engage event in Budapest visiting with more than 300 of our top partners from across the EMEA region.  In addition to sharing more about our company’s strategy and vision, it was also exciting to share the details around our redesigned Partner Program framework.  Built on Symantec’s Global Channel Strategy announced in November, the new Partner Program will better support the way our partners do business by fostering stronger partnerships that enable growth and delivering differentiated value to our customers. 

As we consider the breadth of our portfolio, we need partners who are focused on each type of customer across all levels of complexity.  We need partners that understand and can solve the needs of an SMB just as much as we need partners with deep relationships in the enterprise space to help with more complex solutions....

As many of you may recall, we made a significant addition to our mission last year... adding corporate responsibility leadership to our overall goals because it's an integral part of our overall business success... it's about "doing well and doing good."

This week, we're making Symantec history by sending off the first employee team as part of our Symantec Service Corps.

The Corporate Responsibility team offered all employees the opportunity to apply to join the Service Corps in their inaugural mission to Arequipa, Peru. The team received an amazing 205 applications and from those, 10 employees were chosen to spend a month working with a non-profit organization or academic institution. Team members were chosen based on their applications, manager and HR business partner consultations, and alignment with non-profit needs.

Our...

At Symantec, we make the world a safer place by helping people, businesses, and governments protect and manage their information, so they can focus on achieving their goals.

And protecting information is becoming an ever-greater challenge as the amount dramatically increases and it’s stored in a growing number of locations.

The flood of information is just starting: IDC in its Digital Universe study predicts that there will be 40 Zettabytes of data by 2020. As a comparison, there are only 1.3 Zetta liters of water stored in all of the earth’s oceans. There will be only 1.5 Zetta seconds that tick by during the course of 50 billion years. We are creating and storing an incomprehensible amount...

Did you know that Symantec supports and funds innovative research that occurs outside of a Symantec office in an academic setting? We’ve been doing this for the past six years via the Symantec Research Labs Graduate Fellowship. This Fellowship is awarded to graduate students who are conducting innovative research that has real-world value, in the areas of information security and storage systems. This week, Symantec announced the recipients of the 2013 Symantec Research Labs Graduate Fellowship – Kai Ren, a Ph.D. candidate in computer science at Carnegie Mellon University, and Christian Rossow, a postdoctoral researcher at Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam in The Netherlands and Ruhr University Bochum in Germany.

There's been plenty in the news recently regarding encryption and SSL – which has led some people to wonder how safe the technology really is.  As the leader of Symantec's Trust Services Products & Services organization, I want to assure you that SSL is safe.  Below is some information that may help you understand why, and also inform you about the current state of SSL security.

First, the fundamental key strength of RSA 2048-bit certificates is solid and without question.  Independent cryptography experts have confirmed this, and highly-respected publications such as the MIT Technology Review have published articles on the subject.  As always, organizations that use SSL should make sure they use the strongest algorithms available....

Last week at our annual North America Partner Engage event, we pulled back the curtain on Symantec’s new Global Channel Strategy and shared how we are changing the way we go to market. We have committed to delivering more than 5 percent organic revenue growth with operating margins better than 30 percent, and we can’t achieve this goal without our partners. I’d like to take this opportunity to share more details about the new Global Channel Strategy and explain how it represents an important step forward in Symantec’s 4.0 journey.

But first, let me take a brief step back to provide some context around how we got to this point. When Steve Bennett, our CEO, joined Symantec over a year ago, he embarked on a global listening tour where partners, customers and employees voiced a need for Symantec to change. He learned that Symantec had great technology and great people, but we needed to do more to help our customers solve their bigger jobs. In addition,...
