Bangalore, January 29 2015: Veritas Technologies, the   information storage management business that Symantec has now  spun out as a separate entity, was  originally named Veritas by its CEO  Mark Leslie in honour of Harvad his alma mater , whose motto it is. 
Veritas is the Roman Goddess of Truth,   a daughter of Saturn and the mother of Virtue.  Many statues to Veritas, dot the world from classic times. We feature two here.  Truth is a common theme outside court houses -- but Veritas is possibly the only IT company which  uses  it as  its core identity. 

PS In the image above we recall with nostalgia,  the original logo of Veritas. The new logo  can be found in the picture accompanying our main story  here
