Symantec has named its independent publicly traded information management company 'Veritas Technologies Corporation', the security company announced today.
This new name is a result of the company's birfurcation of its businesses. It also revealed a new logo for Veritas.
"Veritas remains a powerful brand that still has tremendous equity with our customers, partners and employees, and after careful review it was an easy choice as the name for our information management business," said Michael A. Brown, Symantec president and chief executive officer. "While the name recalls the company's heritage, the new logo signals that Veritas is ready to solve the most critical information challenges facing our customers today and tomorrow."
The new logo design was influenced by the concepts of open, heterogeneous technologies that are required to harness the power of information, the company said in a statement.
The Veritas business generated $2.5 billion in revenue for Symantec in fiscal year 2014.
