Another screw-up by acquisition
2010: Symantec buys Verisign's PKI business for $1.28 billion. Symantec removes the "Secured by Verisign" logo to, OMG, "Secured by Norton" because no consumer has ever had their computer slow to a crawl due to the Norton AV bloatware.
2017: Symantec sells the business for $950 million when it had a yearly revenue of $350 million.Their 34th CEO in the last two years is happy.
Re: Another screw-up by acquisition
Makes sense to sell as now free certs are gathering pace.
The real question here is...
... will customers of DigiCert have a problem with this? Some of us don't exactly have a good relationship with Symantec...
