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,...

   It was a pleasure for Symantec to join John Chambers on stage in New York today for Cisco’s Application Centric Infrastructure (ACI)  and Nexus 9000 series launch. ACI represents a big step forward for our industry, enabling IT to automate provisioning of applications down to the network layer, and monitor the health of those applications from the infrastructure up – all through a single pane of glass.
    Symantec is partnering with Cisco to deliver a more secure, compliant and highly available infrastructure for applications and data. We’ll provide the security customers need in such a dynamic environment, including protection against advanced threats — securing their applications and data wherever they are stored and accessed.

By Dr. Rose Quijano-Nguyen, Principal Certification Strategist – Global Vertical Offerings, Symantec Corp.

As remote working arrangements and “bring your own device” programs become more and more common, both the public and private sectors have an increasing need to protect confidential data on mobile devices against mounting cybersecurity threats. Symantec App Center is a mobile application and content management solution that secures corporate data on iOS and Android mobile devices. To allow the public sector to take advantage of the latest mobile technologies in a secure manner, the Symantec App Center Cryptographic Module recently achieved a certification known as the Federal Information Processing...

I’m excited to share that our Corporate Responsibility Report for fiscal year 2013 has been published. This annual report provides an opportunity to review our goals from the previous year, acknowledge successes, and reflect on how we can continue to refine our corporate responsibility strategy. We hope that you will take a look and let us know what you think (in exchange for your opinions, we're giving you a chance to vote on how we should direct a $50,000 USD grant - so be sure to visit our stakholder feedback survey!)

We're also hosting our first-ever...

If it’s worth doing, it’s worth doing on the Internet. And it’s not just Silicon Valley startups that feel this way – cybercriminals do, too. In fact, most types of cons and crimes have migrated to the Internet. Nigerian prince scams remain alive and well, finding more willing victims. Robbing banks is now done with a mouse. And in 2012, we saw that kidnapping (called “ransomware,” and in this case holding your computer hostage) finally became viable on the Internet.

At this point, which crimes haven’t gone digital? Well, fortunately technology barriers still remain when it comes to crimes of violence (though some might argue that a DDoS attack comes close), but you might be surprised to learn that blackmail is gaining traction on the Internet.

In February, the Singapore Police sent out a notification warning of a rather tawdry blackmail scam. In essence, female scam artists secretly recorded online sessions with male victims...

Gears.jpgSymantec already has some of the strongest talent in the industry and that roster is growing – including several new senior executive roles that I’m very excited to announce today. These new team members will bring a fresh perspective and help drive innovative thinking as we solve critical customer problems.

One of the most important objectives for any leader is to build a strong and empowered team; if you do this right, I believe you can accomplish greatness. Joining us from other innovative technology brands like Google, Amazon and Microsoft, these new leaders share this team-building philosophy and possess deep expertise in areas spanning security, cloud, end-user sensibility and customer experience.

Symantec welcomes:

  • Manny Kostas, Chief Marketing Officer (CMO) will be leveraging a broad base of...

We spend a lot of time talking about our company goals, offerings, marketing and sales, and the Symantec 4.0 transition. As a global company with employees in more than 50 countries, we have the unique ability to address some of society's biggest challenges as part of our business goals... we also have a bigger responsibility to make our world better.

Over the past several months, I’ve talked about corporate responsibility a lot internally – we’re  striving for corporate responsibility leadership. But right now, I'd like to focus on one aspect of corporate responsibility and talk about what our employees are doing to contribute to our local communities. Last fiscal year, we set a goal to raise our employee volunteering hours by 20 percent.
