This year's Vision content highlighted a fantastic number of new product announcements that demonstrate Symantec's commitment to deliver solutions for Cloud, Virtualization and Mobile.

This year’s content was delivered in three phases emphasizing Symantec’s vision as presented by Enrique Salem in the first day keynote, followed by the Portfolio Strategy update from Francis deSouza delivered as part of the Product Vision and Strategy Forum. During the four PVSF sessions customers and partners had an opportunity to see a drill down of Symantec’s core product strategies in Storage and Availability Management, Information Management, Security and Endpoint Management, and Mobile.

A number of great product highlights included the announcement of the SFHA 6.0 solutions launch, helping to clarify how you can ‘Get the Private Cloud you want from the Infrastructure you've got’, the O3 solution providing the first holistic security layer above the Cloud, and DLP for iPad to protect your company’s sensitive data.

Finally, a spectacular number of 120 breakout sessions and 50 labs provided technical insight into the complete Symantec portfolio while highlighting our strategic ability to help customers address their key requirements in productivity, agility and cost effectiveness.

Make sure to look out for the conference presentations which will be made available in the coming weeks.

I would imagine the Vision 2012 website is only a week away from launching - do you have a link to it so we can check in for updates? Thanks!

Hey there,

Any idea on whether or not TAs who couldn't go to Vision can get access to documents in areas of interest?
