Symantec SymEd Solution

Enabling technology in academia.
Symantec SymEd Solutions
It is an exciting time in education. Technology is drastically changing the learning process for all involved. Teachers are leveraging technology for initiatives such as online classes and digital textbooks. Students are using their smartphones, laptops, and tablets to conduct research, take tests, and collaborate on assignments via social media platforms. The schools’ curriculum directors, IT administrators, and faculty are tasked with enabling this new era in learning.
To support academia’s challenges around the plethora of opportunities and options provided by technological advancements in education, Symantec has developed the SymEd solution. SymEd offers three solution options that provide immediate cost savings through a new licensing program based on Full Time Employees (FTE) rather than per device models. In addition to cost savings through licensing and reduced infrastructure and operational costs, these packages include increased management and security solutions around mobility and confidential information, regardless of how information is accessed.
