More than 750 fashion stores, 11 major shopping malls, 152 food outlets, and 10 large format retail hypermarkets―but only one information security solution. Could it be done? It certainly could if you are the IT director for the Fawaz Alhokair Group, one of the leading retail franchisers in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. Swapping out a diversified and fragmented suite of security solutions operated with each subsidiary, the IT director and his team have standardized on one world-class, reliable endpoint protection solution: Symantec Protection Suite Enterprise Edition. This single, complete approach to information security protects 3,500 Windows-based endpoints against malware, spam, and spyware by accurately identifying and addressing risks. It’s also playing a vital role in increasing the Group’s competitiveness in the highly charged Saudi retail market: by unifying its security strategy around Symantec Protection Suite, the Fawaz Alhokair Group has reduced its security budget by 70 percent.
