OS X Norton IDSafe: Please Bring Back

Why did Symantec decide to discontinue Norton Identity Safe for OS X? Is it because Apple has KeyChain on iCloud now?

(1) Even if Apple has KeyChain on iCloud now, why not continue support for OS X to give users another option?

(2) Despite having KeyChain on iCloud, many users have numerous passwords already in IDSafe. Thus requiring them to re-enter them all into iCloud.

(3) REDUNANCY! KeyChain has already deleted all my passwords once. I've also had issues with losing bookmarks due to iCloud. On occasion Norton Identity Safe also had issues with syncing properly and thus losing password entries. Having two password managers provides redundancy to prevent loss of dozens, if not hundreds of passwords! Why not provide this option?

(4) Why have a password manager that syncs over the cloud available to all your devices except your Mac? This makes accessing these passwords from one's Mac tedious and complicating.

Please reconsider bringing back Norton IDSafe for OS X.
