Description

Verisign Inc. is a global provider of domain name registry services and internet infrastructure, allowing internet navigation for many of the worlds most recognized domain names. They enable security, stability, and resiliency of key internet infrastructure and services by providing root zone maintainer services, operating two of the 13 global internet root servers, and providing registration services and authoritative resolution for the .com and .net top-level domains, which support the majority of global e-commerce .Verisign also offers a range of security services, including managed DNS, distributed denial-of-service (DDoS) attack mitigation and cyber-threat reporting.

Verisign is based in the US in Reston, Virginia. In 2010, Verisign sold its authentication business unit that included Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) certificate, public key infrastructure, Verisign Trust Seal, and Verisign Identity Protection services to Symantec for $1.28 billion. The deal capped a multi-year effort by Verisign to narrow its focus to its core infrastructure and security business units. Symantec later sold this unit to DigiCert in 2017.

Verisign's former chief financial officer (CFO) Brian Robins announced in August 2010 that the company would move from its original location of Mountain View, California, to Dulles in Northern Virginia by 2011 due to 95% of the company's business being on the East Coast.
