Earlier this year, more than 800 ChannelPro Network readers cast their votes for the most partner- and SMB-friendly products, technologies, services, programs and professional organizations in the channel. Today, I’m happy to share that we won awards in three categories in the ChannelPro Readers’ Choice awards.

On May 20th, we will be making a few changes to the PartnerNet page for our Symantec Endpoint Protection Small Business Edition 2013 product. First, you will notice that the product name will change to “Symantec Endpoint Protection Small Business Edition”. We are removing “2013” from the name in order to help eliminate customer perceptions that the product is outdated. This change will also better reflect the fact that this product is sold primarily as a cloud service and therefore is always up to date. Please note that the SKUs and Buying Programs will not be changed.

Secondly, we have refreshed core collateral for this product with stronger messaging to help you better position this popular solution to your customers:

  • 2013 has been removed from the name in the new materials to reflect that this is a version-less product.
  • Our new messaging focuses primarily on the popular cloud-managed deployment and customers with growing businesses...

Hello all,
 
I thought this maybe useful as it caused a lot of grief that took several days to fix.
 
After Disabling UAC via Domain GPO and Re-enabling it Users that logged in with account when UAC was disabled are now broken and need to be recreated.
 
When I realized that UAC is required for Windows 8 Metro to function I immediately remedied my mistake. However, the damage was already done and my client's profiles that use the Windows 8 machines are at this point broken.
 
I found an article that talks reports "Disabling UAC via this method also breaks many elements in Windows 8."http://www.petri.co.il/disabling-user-account-control-uac-in-windows-8.htm#
 
After enabling UAC for the windows 8 machines all profiles were damaged to the point where a "Temp" profile would be created to login to the affected systems. I then renamed the profile...

Many understand how archiving can complement messaging platforms like Microsoft Exchange Server – the value it delivers to IT Admins and teams that manage these systems. But others still don’t realize the benefits archiving offers beyond email, for other teams inside and outside IT. Valued Symantec resellers – if you have customers or prospects considering information archiving, or are just curious about it, have them attend this webcast for a refresher on the core value of archiving. We’ll also discuss how archiving helps:

  • Manage unstructured data beyond email, such as SharePoint, File Systems and even social media
  • Improve backup and recovery
  • Stop end users from bugging the IT Admin by enhancing user experience and productivity
  • Simplify Compliance and eDiscovery

We’ll take you through common use cases and scenarios that showcase how archiving can help reduce costs and improve operational...
