DigiCert Inc., a Lehi-based global provider of scalable identity and encryption solutions for business, has made major waves in the digital security sector with its acquisition of the website security and public key infrastructure (PKI) operations of cybersecurity giant Symantec Corp. The move has nearly tripled the size of DigiCert, according to industry analysts.
With the acquisition, DigiCert’s number of employees ballooned from around 300 to over 1,000, said company spokesman Jeff Chandler. DigiCert also secured a portion of Symantec’s massive, global customer base, including top enterprises like international banks and retailers, and can now boast locations in California and internationally. Symantec is best known for its Norton brand of cybersecurity products.
