Wondering what was happening with my usual monthly Norman licensing report, I received the following in the January newsletter a few days ago:
As you might have been informed, Norman Shark has recently been acquired by Blue Coat Systems.
As Blue Coat will not be involved in any of our “Safeground” Business, this change forces us to restructure this Business in the US going forward.
We have decided to move the responsibility for this Business to our International Department.
Well, that answrered that question. It was only a couple of years ago that they consolidated North American offices to the west coast. Now, all of our renewals go thorugh Switzerland. No matter; aside from a couple days' delay, our January client renewals were processed and all is settling back to normal.
