"STME has experienced exponential growth throughout the MENA region, partially due to the wide acceptance of Symantec's award-winning data protection and recovery, security and appliance solutions, and we expect it to be a key driver of our future growth," said Afchine Tabrizian, services and support director at STME.
"By achieving this milestone specialisation, STME has demonstrated an investment and expertise in Symantec backup technology and an ability to provide complete protection for their customers' information-driven enterprise. STME is now in an even better position to meet the needs of its customers by delivering high-value solutions to protect and manage their information."
Symantec partners achieve Specialization by meeting certain requirements that deepen their knowledge and proficiency in a solution family, and Specialized Symantec partners receive exclusive benefits as a result of their investment.
"The Data Protection Specialisation was designed to enable partners to differentiate themselves from the competition, maximise customer opportunity and accelerate revenue based on their expertise in the data protection market," said Ramzi Itani, channel manager, Middle East and French-speaking Africa, Symantec Corp.
"Specialised partners have invested in Symantec's solutions to manage and protect their customers' identities as well as critical information, and we are committed to our partners by providing them with the products and services to help grow their business."
