Download the '7 Steps to Windows 7' to learn more about Symantec’s best practice for OS migrations.
Symantec solutions will automate the Windows 7 migration process from end to end, assessing the environment, preserving user settings and data, and removing the need to touch each computer during the upgrade. Migrations with Symantec tools are fast, easy to carry out, and less-expensive than other methods.
An OS migration is the perfect time to re-evaluate and improve IT processes. Symantec packaging, workspace virtualization, and streaming solutions reduce costs and increase productivity of desktop application management during and after the migration.
Windows 7 is Microsoft’s most secure OS yet, however, it still requires additional security software. Working together, Windows 7 Professional and Symantec security solutions provide the multiple layers of security organizations need to protect their critical assets from today’s known and unknown threats.
An OS migration is an opportunity to establish security management policies to comply with industry and regulatory best practices. Symantec solutions can help.
XP Mode: New in Windows 7, Microsoft is making a free virtual machine of Windows XP available for use on business PCs that are running Windows 7. It is important to realize that if you choose to run XP Mode, you now have two instances of the OS that you need to patch and protect from viruses, etc. Symantec Endpoint Protection helps reduce costs by only requiring one license to manage both instances of the OS on a PC.
Symantec minimizes downtime and helps organizations avoid disaster by easily recovering data or complete Windows 7 systems in minutes—not hours or days—even to different hardware.
