Symantec Seeks To Regain Customer, Investor Confidence
Symantec executives put on the company's best face at its Vision user conference this month, only weeks after the dismissal of CEO Steve Bennett. Interim CEO Mike Brown (pictured) said the company was still carrying out some of Bennett's initiatives but aims to speed up progress. At the conference, the company unveiled its retooled channel program, expected to launch in October. Executives also showcased an advanced threat detection managed service and plans for the creation of an advanced threat detection product. Speaking to financial analysts on the company's fiscal 2014 fourth-quarter earnings call, Brown pointed to the headway Symantec is making and to additional changes that somewhat deviate from the new strategy the company rolled out last year. CRN pulled together 10 areas company executives point to when they discuss Symantec's progress.
