After a successful beta period, we are thrilled to share that Symantec Endpoint Protection 12 Small Business Edition is now available!

Participants installed the beta on more than 14,000 endpoints and provided Symantec with input on everything from minor bug fixes to requests for new features and function changes.
Small businesses have become very appealing to cybercriminals, and it is more important than ever to deploy a technology like Symantec Endpoint Protection Small Business Edition . These days, businesses are not just confined to four walls. Employees are often in the field or traveling for their work, and it is essential that endpoints on mobile devices are protected – particularly if a device is lost or stolen.
According to the Symantec Internet Security Threat Report 16, the leading cause of data breaches that could lead to identity theft in 2010 was the theft or loss of a computer or other data-storage device, with 36 percent of the total; this is nearly unchanged from its 37 percent total in 2009. Small businesses cannot afford to gamble with their proprietary information. This is why covering all your bases, particularly with protection suite like Symantec Endpoint Protection is so crucial.
Symantec Endpoint Protection Small Business Edition provides the fastest and most effective protection and is simple to install and manage.
