Symantec Corporation /sɪˈmænˌtɛk/ (commonly known as Symantec) is an American technology company headquartered in Mountain View, California, United States. The company produces software for security, storage, backup and availability - and offers professional services to support its software. Netcraft asseses Symantec (including subsidiaries) as the most-used certification authority. Symantec is a Fortune 500 company and a member of the SP 500 stock-market index.
On October 9, 2014, Symantec declared that the company would split into two independent publicly traded companies by the end of 2015. One company would focus on security, the other on information management. The information-management business will use the name "Veritas Technologies Corporation", echoing the name of Veritas Software (which Symantec acquired in 2005).
The name Symantec represents a combination of the words "syntax" and "semantics".
