Symantec was a great Company. broadcom destroyed everything. broadcom is not a company, they work more like an investment found. no ethics, no mission, only profit.
We heard EMEA Sales will be outsourced!
Does anyone have a theory on whether Cyber Security Services (CSS) will make it to Broadcom? This includes MSS, Intelligence, and Incident Response. It is not a traditional “franchise”, but is the core of many company Tier 1 security functions. .. — read more

Wednesday February 12th ! This could be the final finale. Broadcom has insists that they want to wind up TSA’s by February end.
