Symantec protects the cloud
Karam: Symantec helps organisations secure and protect data.

SYMANTEC will be present in GITEX Cloud Confex, where it will showcase Symantec.cloud. The company’s hosted service uses the power of cloud computing to secure and manage information stored on endpoints and delivered via e-mail, the Web, and instant messaging.

Building on the foundation of MessageLabs market leading software-as-a-service (SaaS) offerings and proven Symantec technologies, Symantec.cloud provides protection while largely eliminating the need to manage hardware and software on site.

“Symantec protects the world’s information, and is the global leader in security, backup and availability solutions,” says Johnny Karam, regional director, Middle East. “Our innovative products and services protect people and information in any environment – from the smallest mobile device, to the enterprise data centre, to cloud-based systems. Our industry-leading expertise in protecting data, identities and interactions gives our customers confidence in a connected world.”

In addition, Symantec will be sponsoring the SME Zone at GITEX and will be announcing new products created specifically to help SMBs protect their information.

Symantec has a professional services arm, Symantec Services, which offers technical knowledge and additional resources, such as support and education. The division advises organisations on how to address information security, availability, storage and compliance challenges, from the endpoint to the data centre.

Symantec helps drive business for the channel community with demand generation initiatives, marketing support, discount programmes, and sales support.

“Customers of all sizes are faced with one essential challenge: the need to secure and manage an enormous amount of information,” says Karam. “Symantec enables organisations to secure and manage their information through market leading products and services.”
