Concerned about your Symantec Email Security?
Broadcom recently announced the acquisition of Symantec’s enterprise security business. In this announcement, Broadcom proposed changes that could negatively impact their email security customers. Broadcom CEO said semiconductor manufacturer plans to enhance its investment around the Symantec enterprise security endpoint, web, and data loss protection products, while scaling down investment in other areas.
See why customers are switching to Barracuda.
Broadcom also mentioned they will be focused on global 2000 organizations. If you have Symantec’s email security solution and are not on their top 2000 customer list, you should be thinking about contingency plan.
Industry analysts are also concerned.
I'm greatly concerned about the future of Symantec's enterprise business. First, Broadcom is a hardware company and software isn't their core competency. On top of that, Symantec has been a troubled company for some time that has been looking for direction but still hasn't found it.

The threat landscape is ever evolving. Your email security needs to keep up.
Email is the #1 threat vector with 93% of breaches start with email1. The threat landscape is changing rapidly and email remains the most common attack vector. Social engineering attacks such as Business Email Compromise have cost businesses over $26 billion in past three years. They are the #1 way businesses lose money to cybercrime.
Despite this dynamic threat landscape, Broadcom’s R&D investment in email security is getting scaled down. They are looking to cut overall R&D by 40%. Unless they invest in innovation they will quickly fall behind, even if they continue support and maintain the existing services.
Traditional solutions like Symantec cannot keep up with today’s sophisticated attacks and furthermore, acquisitions create tremendous uncertainty.
