There are two reasons I posted this. One, supposedly the new version of Norton is actually fast and doesn't eat up all of your resources. It might be something to look at. Two, Symantec is paying with 310 pounds of sterling silver. I thought that was a bit odd.

Symantec is acquiring MessageLabs, a maker of online messaging and Web security services, the company said Monday.

The deal is valued at approximately $695 million in cash, with Symantec paying 310 million pounds sterling and $154 million.

Symantec said the deal will help it strengthen its position in the software-as-a-service market. Symantec will focus on cross-selling and up-selling its existing SaaS offerings of backup, storage, and online remote access into the MessageLabs customer base.

MessageLabs generated approximately $145 million in revenue during fiscal year 2008, ended July 31, the companies said. The deal is expected to close by the end of the 2008 calendar year.
