Symantec has announced that it is combining the power of the VeriSign checkmark with Norton brand, to create the most recognised trust mark on the Internet – the Norton Secured Seal. It will be displayed more than half a billion times per day in 170 countries on websites and in search results on enabled browsers. The Norton Secured Seal provides consumers and businesses with the assurance that the website is highly-trusted and secure.
Together with the combined brand equity strengths, Symantec and Norton have created the most trusted global brand for protecting information and identities online. Since the VeriSign acquisition, Symantec has expanded its authentication business, integrating rigorous website security and anti-malware technologies, to develop market-leading solutions. The company builds on its leadership, as the world’s largest and most trusted provider of Security Sockets Layer (SSL) certificates, into offering comprehensive website security solutions.
To provide users a visual representation of the two most trusted names in online security, Symantec will automatically update all VeriSign seals with the Norton Secured Seal to websites worldwide starting April 17, 2012 for about two weeks. The completely seamless transition will require no action by current customers. Other companies that self-host the seal will need to manually update the Norton Secured Seal.
