Mahdi's advice at this point? Prepare, as one would when site certificates come up for renewal. "There are a lot of options," he said. "If you're a current Symantec customer, get a game plan from them as soon as they have one. Ask what kind of incentive they'll give to get you to stay.
"But there are competitors out there, such as Entrust, GlobalSign and Comodo," Mahdi said. "Certificates are a fairly commoditized market. People usually select [a vendor] based on price, brand and support. Look at least three providers, just as you would at renewal time."
