Symantec to Acquire Brightmail

Posted 1 year, 1 month ago on May 19, 2004
Symantec, the company perhaps best-known for its Norton AntiVirus, has announced today that it will acquire anti-spam company Brightmail for a cool $300million. Symantec already owned 11% of Brightmail owing to an investment made in July of 2000.

Brightmail is, of course, the anti-spam purveyor to Hotmail.

Can an acquisition of IronPort by Symantec be far behind? Then Symantec would pretty much own the entire anti-spam gateway into Microsoft's inboxes.
