According to a CNET article, Symantec has just aquired TurnTide. (TurnTide is a Pennsylvania based company that specializes in filtering out unwanted mail at the router level.)
In May, Symantec acquired BrightMail, a company that sold software to fight spam. Other aquisitions include PowerQuest, On Technoglogy, Safeweb, Nexland, Recourse Technologies,
Riptech, Security Focus, Mountain Wave, AXENT, 20/20 Software, L-3 Network Security, URLabs, Quarterdeck, Binary Research (Ghost).

Just heard that Unisys shares dropped 15% on the warning that they would not meet prior forecasts.
I interned at Unisys last year and definitely felt that the company offered the end to end solution from hardware/ software to outsourcing. Sadly, it seems that the company has trouble distinguishing itself from other consulting offerings.

Unisys announced today that its second quarter earning slid by 63% and earned 19.4 million dollars, or six cents a share, on revenue of 1.4 billion dollars.

This blog entry is work in progress as I’m going to collect links and resources on how to tackle the Quixtar campaign.
