What a great week at Partner Engage: a fantastic time to meet our partners from across the region at this second stand-alone edition of Partner Engage in EMEA! The two days were filled with even more discussions and interactions than last year, and I have also watched how great an opportunity it was for our partners to exchange views and experience, network with their peers and Symantec, and certainly initiate new business opportunities.  The feedback I have personally received from the partners I’ve heard from has been amazing.  Many of you seem truly excited about the new Symantec strategy and future direction.

Two years ago, we launched the enhanced Partner Program, and Specializations.  What a long way we have all come, I am really proud to see the commitment of our partners, the way they feel empowered with the different initiatives that we have launched: the Yellow Book, the Partner Sales Academies, appliance programs, a new Specialization…...

Our channel partners have always been on the front lines when it comes to solving problems for businesses, by bringing the right solutions into the workplace. In the next few years, for example, we anticipate a fundamental shift in the use and the safety of the cloud – a future where the cloud is safer than the data center. In this future of secure clouds, employees will leverage multiple complex clouds for storing all kinds of business and personal information and have the ability to seamlessly access this information without worrying about how it’s protected. Behind the scenes, IT will be full of specialized employees, each performing one essential function with the help of the latest solutions ensuring organizations continue to maintain their security posture.

We have some work to do before we get to that point, of course. Right now businesses are dealing with rapidly growing, unstructured information that has no clear ownership and is constantly in danger of...

Last month, we held our annual Partner Engage conference in Baltimore – my first as the new Symantec Channel Chief – and coming away from that event I am filled with a real sense of excitement about the opportunities, insight and experiences we shared there. As you all know, Symantec is in a state of evolution -- transforming, refining and improving products, services and processes that can make a difference to partners and their customers. Steve Bennett, our new CEO, spoke at the event and outlined a strategy we are calling ‘Symantec 4.0’ that will be marked by tremendous new opportunities for our partners. I’ve been with Symantec for eight years – they’ve all been great years – but I am more confident than ever that we as a company are at the precipice of the best chapter yet in our history.

The level of enthusiasm among the attendees at Partner Engage was palpable, as they are witnessing firsthand the changes that are...

I am very happy to share that Symantec recently won 2 of the most prestigious awards from 2 of the most reputable publishing houses in the Middle East Region. “Security Vendor of the Year” was awarded to Symantec at the Network World Middle East Awards 2012 by publishing house Corporate Publishing International (CPI). The very next night, guess who won the “Software Vendor of the Year” at the Channel Middle East Awards 2012 by Information Technology Publishing (ITP)?
Symantec, of course!
First of all, I would like to thank our team in the region for getting us to the stage where well-regarded media and organizations clearly see us as an industry leader, recognizing...

I’m always excited about meeting our partners from across the region and I have to say that this first stand-alone edition of Partner Engage in EMEA more than fulfilled my expectations. What a delight to meet so many of you from all countries across the region! And that went far beyond just meeting, but also discussing and interacting with you, and seeing you catching new networking opportunities there.

It also went beyond my expectations as this year’s theme, re:think, was about going beyond our existing relationships and existing opportunities. Partner Engage 2012 was clearly aimed at empowering you with the latest information, sales and technical expertise as well as insights in order to meet our clients’ needs in higher information protection better and together. It was about re:thinking the way we can maximize opportunities, re:imagining how to make it easier for SMBs to do business with us and altogether, re:energizing the way we do business together...

According to the sixth annual Ponemon report, 2010 Annual Study: U.S. Cost of a Data Breach sponsored by Symantec, the need for complete protection has never been more urgent – 31 percent of all breach cases involved a malicious or criminal act, and averaged $318 per record, up 43 percent from 2009.  In addition, the number of breaches caused by negligence edged up one point to 41 percent and averaged $196 per record, up 27 percent from 2009.  This steady trend reflects the ongoing challenge of ensuring employee and partner compliance with security policies.

As partners, you have the opportunity to help your customers assess their risk and provide both services and products to help them prevent costly data breaches.  To get started, check out this great tool, the Data Breach Risk Calculator, to show your customers their level of risk and engage in...
