Symantec awards Help AG Platinum Partner status
This adds to its Blue Coat Elite Partner, BlueTouch Support Partner and Blue Coat Professional Services Partner qualifications
Symantec has awarded Help AG its Platinum Partner status under the vendor's Secure One channel partner program.
Building on a decade-long partnership, the status entitles Help AG to the highest level of support from the vendor and access to benefits and technical resources that will allow them to better serve their customers.
To achieve the Platinum Partner status, Help AG met a number of criteria including technical validation, customer references, and sales certification requirements which confirmed its high level of technical expertise on Symantec's portfolio. The reseller also managed to grow its business with Symantec in the areas of Information Protection, Core Security and Threat Prevention.
Stephan Berner, CEO at Help AG, said: "We are very pleased to extend our partnership with Symantec given our success in delivering their solutions to customers across the Middle East. They have been one of our longest standing vendor partners and we have developed in-depth technical competency on their solutions. This has enabled us to deliver robust security solutions in the areas of Data Loss Prevention, encryption, endpoint protection, and data centre security, and incorporate their products in our security frameworks."
Help AG also holds the statuses of Blue Coat Elite Partner, BlueTouch Support Partner (BTSP) and Blue Coat Professional Services Partner (PSP). "We have attained the highest partnership level with Blue Coat and now Symantec making us one of the most qualified partners in the Middle East," added Berner. "This means that customers can be assured that when they select Help AG, they are engaging with a partner that is fully qualified and capable of addressing the complete life-cycle of this vendor's enterprise solutions."
Berner believes that Help AG's customers will benefit from such competence and is keen to capitalise on new business opportunities with Symantec by focusing on the banking and finance, government, oil & gas, retail, aviation, education, and media industry verticals.
