Partners – our newest Specialization is now available! The launch of the Encryption Solutions Specialization coincides with the integration of PGP and GuardianEdge channel partners into the Symantec Partner Program. This means more opportunities for you to differentiate from your competition and maximize your sales opportunities with Symantec.
The merging of the two programs broadens the Symantec partner ecosystem and gives all of our partners an expanded product portfolio. Combined with the new Encryption Solutions Specialization, our partners will have more opportunities to be ready to solve customers’ complex security challenges and maximize revenue at the same time.
With all of the new and emerging threats companies of all sizes face, encryption technology is a must-have. We are now in an age where workforces are mobile, so if a device is lost or stolen, the encryption technologies installed on that device can help keep your customers’ business information—from bank account information, to patient records—safe, and prevent it from getting into the wrong hands.
So partners, I believe you’ve got great opportunity to be successful in this market and I encourage you to take advantage of it. We mentioned to you last year that we’d be giving you more opportunities to differentiate your businesses, maximize revenue and accelerate profitability. We’re committed to that promise and look forward to a successful 2011.
