Monday we had the wonderful experience of being human: We made a mistake.

In our press release highlighting a recent Netcraft report, we stated that Symantec has a 40 percent market share of the EV SSL market. However, we actually have 65 percent market share.

We’ve corrected the mistake in our release on our website, and are happy to note that we had under reported our market share, which is much less embarrassing than if we over reported.

You can view the updated release here:

The January Netcraft report follows a year riddled with high-profile attacks and targeting of Certificate Authorities—attacks that highlight the need for a strong, reliable, and responsible Certificate Authority community. The increasing popularity of SSL certificates and EV SSL certificates, as reflected in...

Data Explosion * Risk and Compliance * Cloud * Mobility * Making it all work together

These topics are all front of mind in our increasingly complex IT landscape. Symantec offers the solutions to protect your most valuable asset. Your data and your patients’ data.

Evolving infrastructure, increasing complexity, and the challenging threat landscape are forcing Health IT to evolve from a systems-centric to an information-centric model of service delivery. Hospitals are under massive pressure to protect their information, all the while needing to increase the scope of infrastructure their employees can use to access this data. With this shift, providers will be managing information and applications, across ever changing environments such as virtual, mobile devices and cloud-based applications - - all under increasing regulatory control, enforcement, and penalties.

Arriving again on New York Ave. 1100 NW to be exact.  I love this city.  In Washington old man winter has arrived. 

The topic of the day is Cybersecurity legislation and privacy.  This is a touchy subject for all because it is a very delicate balance of our constitutional rights as US citizens and the very freedom our troops fight for on the battlefields to ensure the security and livelihood of the land of the free.

Those of us who have been without power for more than 3 days or had the Verizon recording repeating “all circuits are busy” when you are trying to communicate with someone you love in a crisis or sitting in the HOV lanes dead stop and all lanes are blocked.  The feeling of no control is a constant reminder of how fortunate we are…everyday. 

Many generations have physically fought for...

About a month ago, on my personal blog, I posted about a FedEx day idea and our attempt to organise it here at When all emotions went down I was dog tired but happy. We did it and what a great success! I hope my reflections will help you to organise a FedEx day in your company.

Three Weeks Before

I've been thinking about organising a FedEx day since I've read Drive by Daniel H. Pink. It took me couple of months to convince management that they can afford letting bunch of developers to abandon projects for a day and a half. Finally when I got an uncertain consent I could start planning.

The first FedEx was scheduled on 1st December and I had just about three weeks to make it happen...

The CHIME Fall CIO Forums combine the best speakers and healthcare IT educators in the nation with unparalleled opportunities for CIOs and healthcare IT executives to network with their peers and collectively share solutions, solve problems and address challenges.

Symantec sponsored the Friday Morning Keynote speaker at this year's CHIME Fall Forum in San Antonio October 25 - 28, Craig Schiefelbein.
