Symantec Buys VeriSign

Security giant Symantec announced a definitive agreement to acquire VeriSign's security-related business for $1.28 billion yesterday. According to the deal, Symantec will take over VeriSign's server authentication, secure socket layer (SSL) and identity protection services, as well as its public key infrastructure (PKI).

VeriSign is one of the organizations that play a critical role on the Internet as we know it today. The company operates two of the Internet's DNS root nameservers and is the registry operator for the .com and .net domain name TLDs. All changes to the Internet's root zone file are also operated by VeriSign after they pass the U.S. Department of Commerce’s approval.

UGH! I hope not everything Symantec buys they make worse than the original way the company or software was going. Example Norton Tools, worked great until Symantec bought them.
