How are Symantec and Blue Coat in the best and unique position to realize these benefits?

The combination of our threat intelligence databases and the immediate effectiveness gains that brings to our web gateway and our endpoint…really sets us apart from the competitors…The advanced threat protection from Symantec is fantastic, coupled with what we're doing with advanced threat products at Blue Coat, delivers a solution that is highly differentiated…The market leading cloud solution…we'll pair that up with the email capabilities of Symantec and the DLP capabilities of Symantec, I think that offering, with our CASB [cloud access security broker] and cloud data protection layers, is by far and away the best solution. The endpoint, we believe we can integrate the endpoint with our cloud. That brings massive value propositions, both for consumer and enterprise endpoint.

We feel very strongly about a number of these vectors and there are a number more also. The roadmaps from the Symantec laboratories and Blue Coat laboratories are excellent. I think just executing what we've already committed to the market is already fantastic. I feel very good about where we are…This is a monumental day for cyber defense and cyber security. I think we will look back on this combination for many years to come and it will be the defining moment of the next generation, in a cloud generation of security systems.
