We announced some exciting news in November about Symantec’s plans to acquire LifeLock, and now I’m happy to share that the deal has closed and our integration with LifeLock, and its enterprise subsidiary ID Analytics, is underway.
There is a lot of passion and excitement from our combined team around the promise and potential we have together to provide a comprehensive digital safety platform that gives you, our customers, a greater sense of security with the addition of identity theft protection expertise.
With this acquisition, Symantec is redefining what safety means in a connected world.
There has never been a greater need for an organization to step forward and help navigate this complex and rapidly evolving online landscape. Cybercriminals will continue to become more sophisticated and will always be looking for ways to access and steal personal information.
Our commitment is to be our customers’ online security champions and help protect their privacy, security, and now with the LifeLock acquisition, help protect their identity. Our experts will help consumers protect their digital information so they can take full advantage of the benefits of connected living.
We all live our lives online—whether shopping, searching or sharing with friends and family—and we want our customers to know we are here to help protect and defend their digital safety.
We are thrilled the deal is closed and we can move forward with the talented LifeLock and ID Analytics teams to help provide consumers with the technology, research and services they need to safely connect—anywhere and everywhere—from any of their devices and into the cloud.
