What is the strategic rationale for this acquisition?

I'm very excited to be leading Symantec. Since I was a junior in the laboratories many years ago in the mid-80s in the Unix software operation, I was fascinated around security issues and that passion is alive and well today. Symantec has a phenomenal history of solving very difficult problems in cyber defense area, across consumer and enterprise. Combined with Blue Coat…we have the technical power and the intellectual property to really change the industry and how that works. I'm very excited about that.

I am a leader that is extremely financially aware and lead an organization that I call "P&L Aware" across the organization. I'm confident that we will deliver [on] the commitments to the shareholders around the margins for the business in the future. With that, at the end of the day, exciting customers is what drives top-line growth.
