Symantec and VeriSign® to Deliver Stronger Identity Protection for Consumers

Joint Identity Protection and Authentication Solutions to be Offered to Financial Institutions, Online Retailers and Consumers

Symantec and VeriSign announced on 10 October 2006 plans to deliver security solutions to combat the growing threat of consumer identity theft and fraud on the Internet.  Symantec plans to offer support for the VeriSign® Identity Protection (VIP) Authentication Service, which allows consumers to utilize one-time passwords to protect their online identity.  The VIP Authentication Service is enhanced by the VIP Shared Authentication Network which enables consumers to use one credential across multiple member websites.  In addition, the two companies intend to jointly market combined identity and security solutions to financial institutions, online retailers and end users. 

As part of its Security 2.0 strategy, Symantec will provide its Norton customers with the best available solutions for stronger authentication, with support and integration of Norton Accounts with the VIP authentication credentials.  The company plans to provide access to a VIP, two-factor credential in a future release of Norton security software.  The VIP Shared Authentication Network enables consumers to use a single credential across multiple websites. With two of the most trusted Internet security brands, Symantec and VeriSign have the potential to create a widely-used standard for global identity protection.  Symantec's more than 50 million active Norton subscribers, plus millions of additional consumers who are reached through Symantec's OEM and ISP channels, will have access to the joint offering.

“Our Security 2.0 vision is all about building confidence and trust online for consumers.  Identity protection and strong authentication are critical elements of that,” said Enrique Salem, group president, Consumer Business Unit, Symantec Corp.  “By working with VeriSign, we are combining strong assets in identity protection, transaction security, and the confidence that millions of consumers have in the Norton and VeriSign brands.”

“VeriSign has a long history of protecting and securing digital identities on the Internet, and Symantec has a long history of protecting consumers and their digital information. With a layered security approach, across users, desktops and the network infrastructure, VeriSign and Symantec can enable the strongest security with the most convenience,” said Judy Lin, executive vice president and general manager, VeriSign Security Services.

VIP Authentication Service provides identity protection to consumers who conduct business online.  By using an open standards approach, VIP Authentication Service and the VIP Shared Authentication Network allow enterprise members to easily issue and accept two-factor authentication from users, thus eliminating the need to distribute and manage traditional hardware authentication tokens, which has hampered the adoption of stronger, safer authentication technologies.  The VIP Shared Authentication Network has also been endorsed by PayPal, eBay, Charles Schwab and Yahoo!  For more information on VIP, please click here .

Through this relationship with VeriSign, as well as the launch of Norton Confidential Online Edition, Symantec is working to deliver on its Security 2.0 vision of building consumer confidence and trust online.  The company is addressing new and evolving threats with new technologies, partnerships and delivery models.
