You can now seamlessly move between PartnerNet and Symantec Connect! Just login into either application and then move freely between the two (providing you have accounts in both). This allows you to navigate around PartnerNet and then go to Connect, where you will be automatically joined to the partner group, to post questions, add comments, suggest ideas, write a blog post or article, even post videos. By being a member of the partner group, you have the option to post on Connect publicly (by default) or making your post private by un-checking the public box to share information exclusively with other partners and Symantec employees.

Hello Partner Community,

Just wanted to share a link to the cover story for the latest issue of The Confident SMB.

It features NetX Information Systems, a Symantec Platinum partner and healthcare provider, Metrolina Nephrology Associates. Read how Symantec and NetX were able to provide an integrated technology solution that allowed the customer to reduce resources and costs on IT management so more time could be spent on providing quality care to their patients. You can also link to an audio podcast and video testimonial from the interactive online magazine.

For more information on NetX Information Systems and their NetX Server Appliance check out their success details page on the Partner Success site....

Hello, we have been very excited by working in the Symantec community, I would like to share some tips for implementations by existing Symantec users of the Biomni Service Catalog solution ( for end users and customers wishing to both understand IT service offerings available to them and to raise requests against those services.

Tip1 - Underestimate the amount of time you require for training on Biomni applications! We have found that anyone who can administrate the Symantec tool suite can 'learn' how to administrate biomni very quickly, typically after only a couple of hours clients have been off and building. The entire configuration is carried out through an intuitive UI, so there’s no programming involved and your biomni consultant is always at the end of the phone to help with any questions.

Here's an interesting article in Symantec's online magazine The Confident SMB. It features Symantec partner, Blue Chip Tek and their customer, MobiTV.

MobiTV’s end-to-end managed service platform enables the delivery of  100 television and video channels from more than 50 content providers, including NBC, ABC, ESPN Mobile TV, Disney Channel, FOX News, COMEDY CENTRAL and Bravo to its subscribers. The company’s subscriber base has tripled over just the past two years to nine million, and its IT infrastructure was feeling the strain. They needed a solution that was more integrated and would allow them to plug-and-play various features into a common dashboard. So MobiTV worked with Symantec partner Blue Chip Tek, Inc. to implement Altiris Service and Asset Management...

Wow!  We at GreenBytes couldn’t be more excited about the outlook of our new partnership with Symantec.  It has been a whirlwind since we announced our inline dedupe product line in September (GB-X Series) and our certified support for OST has added a new dimension to the conversation. 

GreenBytes is not another “Me Too” vendor as it relates to OST.  We have fully implemented Optimized Duplication, providing enhanced replication that is fully DR aware.  And, we are poised and ready for Optimized Synthetic Full Backups when they become available to the world.  We are also very excited about the prospects of BackupExec customers being able to utilize OST.  We are actively developing plugins for BE 2010 and can’t wait to deploy them with our existing and future BE customers.  But, that’s not where the story ends.

GreenBytes provides competitive advantages over previous deduplicating OST appliances....

This Blog Post comes from "View From the Bunker" - a blog about security and availability from some of the folk at Symantec. We will continue to check this blog and share its insights here regularly.

iPad’s domination of the news agenda has provided a golden opportunity for cybercriminals to target consumers hungry for more information on Apple’s new creation.

As soon as the announcement was made, we observed that related search terms had become targets for Blackhat SEO attacks and phishing attacks. People interested in finding out more about the iPad over the internet must be on guard. 

The excitement over the iPad has been building for months now, so it’s only to be expected that its announcement would spark a huge spike in search traffic...

A zero-day vulnerability recently identified in Microsoft Internet Explorer was used as an entry point for a coordinated set of cyber attacks that has been carried out on dozens of large enterprises. Please be advised that Symantec is working to keep our partners and customers informed of these cyberattacks known as Hydraq (also known as Aurora, Google Attacks, and the Microsoft IE Vulnerability (advisory number 979352)). The malware behind most of these attacks, "Trojan.Hydraq" appears to have been part of a sophisticated attack pattern designed to steal large amounts of intellectual property. Your customers may have become aware of this event from the heavy media coverage about the attacks on Google.
The underlying vulnerabilities used in this attack are now widely known and likely to be exploited by other cybercriminals even though the Command and Control infrastructure behind this coordinated attack has been taken down.

It is important...
