Hello Everyone,

I thought the partner community would be interested to check out this video and joint customer success story for Legal Aid Center of Southern Nevada, a non-profit that provides free legal advice and representation to low-income residents who can’t afford and attorney. Kortek Solutions and Symantec partnered to provide this non-profit with a free IT Makeover deploying Symantec Protection Suite Advanced Business Edition. Results include an 85 percent reduction in backup times and nine-fold faster recoveries. 

The success story and video can be found here:

This is not going to be popular; but it has to be acknowledged.

I have been working extremely hard to get some penetration into the SMB space with SEP for the past 2 and a bit years.
The trouble is, so many of my clients have such bad memories of some of the disasters of 2007/2009  et al AV and similar branded products, that they flat out refuse to accept that things are much better now with SEP and the recovery/backup products.

I really think Symantec needs to address this area, (and everyone says how BIG the SMB space is...) with a focussed marketing campaign.
In my case, one tiny voice shouting into a vast room is not getting very far.

Anyone else seeing this sort of resistance?
(I am in Australia - Canberra, so it may be a little different in environmental terms, where you have large Govt depts on one hand and many SMB's on the other and nada in between.)

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...
