Polyolefins isn’t a word that crops up regularly, but in fact it’s the key ingredient that makes up much of the world’s plastics products―and it’s also at the center of the Borealis’ business. Symantec solutions are also at the heart of this multinational plastics company. While Symantec security solutions are worked discretely and efficiently in the background protecting more than 5,000 endpoints and up to 400 servers from malware and viruses, their client management solutions are equally busy supporting remote software deployments, imaging, and patch management. The solution stealing the headlines though is Symantec Enterprise Vault, which Borealis is using to archive terabytes of email, file systems data, and SharePoint storage onto low cost, accessible storage. This intelligent single instance storage solution is reducing storage capacity by 30 percent and saving Borealis up to €10,000 per terabyte of storage.
