AT&T on Thursday announced it is acquiring the global security consulting business of VeriSign to complement the telcom giant's suite of network-based cybersecurity services.

Terms of the deal were not disclosed. The move by VeriSign aligns with a 2007 decision to concentrate on its core internet infrastructure business and divest other units. — DK
