Symantec has appointed Michael Brown as CEO.

Brown has served as interim CEO since the start of the year following the departure of Steve Bennett.

Brown becomes the IT security provider’s third permanent CEO in as many years. The company is reported to have reviewed more than 100 potential candidates for the role, but said Brown had made significant improvements to its operating and financial performance during his tenure as interim CEO.
