Hello Partners,

Be sure to check out and join "The Best of Vision on Demand" group on Symantec Connect.  It's a great way to stay in touch with what's happening  at Symantec's Vision 2012. 

You can watch live video streams of the keynotes and breakout sessions and access on demand videos.  I just posted Enrique Salem's opening keynote and more videos will be available shortly.

After the conference, we'll have the recorded sessions and presentations available from all of the sessions.

A new improved OEM program has been launched in EMEA aimed at helping our system integrator partners to easily incorporate Symantec technology into their products , with the ultimate goal of helping to grow their customer base and increase their revenues.

This new program provides the full support of a dedicated Account Manager and System Engineers, and because of a lower commit figure it is more affordable to join.  Solutions included within the OEM Program are Storage & Availability Management, Information Management, Security, and Infrastructure Operations.

You can find out more about this program by visiting

We have just launched a new feature on Symantec Connect today that I think you'll really like. 

For those users that have been "Certified" by Symantec (aka:  Symantec Certified Specialist or SCS) you will now see a blue "certification" badge next to the users name.  The certification program here at Symantec combines our data protection, high availability, and security credentials into a single program that spans Symantec solutions. 

Certifications are customer focused and the exams are designed specifically for customers and cover core elements measuring technical knowledge and competency against factors such as installation, configuration, product administration, day-to-day maintenance, and basic troubleshooting.

You may be asking, so what is the difference between Certifications and Accreditations?

Accreditation is partner focused and the only vehicle by which...

I'm Kevin Mikalsen and I've been part of the Symantec University for Partners for nearly 5 years and as of September, I was asked to step up and lead the Enterprise Partner Readiness and Enablement efforts. In this blog, I’d like to share some reflections on the first 100 days in my new role and gather your input on how we are doing and what you'd like us to do more of.

First, I'm very fortunate to be leading such a great team focusing on global partner readiness & enablement.  Secondly, ours is a global team and we have a great relationship with the channel leadership in all the regions and that is something we'll continue to maintain. Lastly, and most importantly, I recognize that in order to be successful in my new role I have to turn my voice off and my hearing on. I have to really listen to what our partners, channel sales/marketing teams that support the partners have to say.  I started...

You want to know the procedure or best practice regarding installing Symantec Scan Engine on a clustered environment.

The Scan Engine Server itself does not know that other scan engines exist and is not Cluster Aware.  The recommendation for Scan Engine is always a dedicated stand alone server, or a pool of stand-alone servers that can be contacted by an ICAP client. The ICAP client is given a list of available Scan Engines and takes care of load balancing.  In the case of a cluster the ICAP client would be given the IP addresses of the individual nodes.This results in the Clustering being redundant feature.

Hello Partners,

If you like to get your information about Symantec products and technology in a video format, be sure to check out the recently redesigned SymantecTV.

With a more modern look, you can now search videos and browse through each video category with greater integration.  In addition, there is more subtitling and language support.  And, for those of you that are always on the road, be sure to check out the new mobile playback and navigation functionality. 

You can also find all the Symantec Connect videos located under the Community tab as well as here on Symantec Connect.  We've added a lot of new, screencasts, how-to product videos, and demonstrations with more on the way.

Check it out and let us know what you think.

Achieving Master Specialization status requires considerable investment. I was really intrigued when I read about Insentra's story and I think you should be too.  Here is a company that identified a real channel reseller need and has built their business to help you deliver Symantec solutions.  By working with a company like Insentra, you can overcome those upfront investment hurdles.  I think it is a great way to help you grow your revenue and pool of technical skills when needed!  Rather than staffing up and carrying a huge overhead for deals that may happen sporadically, at least initially, you can access the talent that a company like Insentra makes available to you. 

Is this a common problem?  Do you think your region could benefit from a partnership like this?
