Symantec—Backup Exec 2010
Symantec’s industry-standard Backup Exec 2010 backup-and-recovery solution wins this award thanks to the exciting new energy poured into version 2010 (the fastest-adopted version of the tool ever). With new integrated features such as data de-duplication, archiving, OST-based management features, and granular restore technology—all leveraging powerful Symantec technologies and teams—Backup Exec 2010 expands its horizons while becoming extremely user-friendly and community-aware.
Symantec—Symantec Endpoint Protection, Small Business Edition 12
Symantec Endpoint Protections Small Business Edition 12 provides smaller businesses with a centrally managed security system similar to what enterprises have, but with a price and ease of use suited to SMBs. This product won because of its focus on a market where there have been few choices for small businesses that need suites with these kinds of features.
