Looking for the email security market leader?
With the acquisition of Symantec’s enterprise business by Broadcom, some Email Security.cloud, formerly MessageLabs, customers may realize they’re no longer working with an email security market leader. Here are some of the headlines following the acquisition news:
- Marketwatch: Symantec is another “decaying software asset” for Broadcom to add
- SearchSecurity: Broadcom-Symantec deal troubles cybersecurity experts
- SDxCentral: Broadcom Pay $10.7B, Puts Symantec Out of its Misery
This development comes at a time when email continues to be the #1 vector for attacks, and when email security risks like ransomware and phishing continue to successfully breach even the most robust security defenses. Industry observers have said that this deal should serve as a warning to Symantec customers about the future of Symantec’s product portfolio as certain products will no longer receive the development and innovation required to defend against existing threats, let alone prevent the increasingly sophisticated attacks that emerge each month. Email Security.cloud was not one of the product areas highlighted for investment in R&D and Support in the acquisition announcement.
For Symantec customers approaching their product renewal and seeking a superior Email Security.cloud replacement, powerful solutions are available from an email security market leader – Mimecast.
