Industry experts have suggested that the pending acquisition of Symantec by Broadcom will serve as a warning to CISOs since Broadcom have decided to focus R&D and Support on certain products only. As a result, some customers may begin to investigate a MessageLabs replacement. Here are some of the headline reactions:
At a time when email-borne threats are among the biggest risks to enterprise security, organizations need the strongest possible email security defenses.

Customers feared that MessageLabs would not get the resources required to keep this cybersecurity software product at the top of its game in defending against newly emerging threats.
