After the spinf-off of Veritas (now focused on the Backup and Data Protection part), seems that Symantec is more and more focused on the security and cloud aspects.

Nearly two years ago they announced the intention to become the leading pure play security company. Today with the close of the Blue Coat acquisition they try to make that intention a reality. By combining the leader in endpoint, email, data loss prevention, and data center security with the #1 market share leader in Web Security and Cloud Generation Security.

Moving forward under our combined leadership, Symantec is focused on solving the challenges faced by the Cloud Generation, including securing the mobile workforce, ensuring safe usage of the cloud, and intelligently protecting against advanced threats.

Will be interesting what will appear to the cloud offer of Symantec solutions, especially for the endpoint security.
