Backup and Security Solutions in Virtual Environments for Small Businesses

Virtualization brings you forward. Symantec protects you along the way.
Virtualization makes your small business more efficient, but it also opens up your data and systems to new security risks. Don’t leave your data at risk.

Why Symantec solutions for virtualized environments?
The benefits of virtualization are significant and can be seen by large and small companies alike. While many large organizations have some type of protection for their virtualized environment, research suggests that 60 percent of SMBs do not back up their data and are therefore more vulnerable to attack. Are you part of that statistic? Protect your business with solutions from Symantec. Our range of VMware and Hyper-V integrated solutions offers proven effectiveness and centralized workflows for physical and virtual platforms. This allows your company to introduce virtualization without sacrificing security or backup and recovery capabilities.

Are Symantec Virtualization Solutions Right For Me?

Symantec solutions support both physical and virtual environments from a single console.
Use traditional physical backup solutions for backing up your virtual machines?

You need a solution that allows you to restore important data quickly?
Using patent-pending granular recovery technology from Symantec, you can recover granular data such as Exchange emails, SharePoint documents or files/folders in minutes.
Are you worried about virtual machine sprawl?
Symantec solutions automatically identify and protect new virtual machines as they appear so you can be assured they are protected from day one.
