Symantec Intros Services, Tools for Endpoint

CUPERTINO, Calif. -- Symantec Corp. (Nasdaq: SYMC) today announced services and tools to help businesses deploy, integrate, operate and maintain Symantec Endpoint Protection 11.0 and Symantec Network Access Control 11.0 within their unique IT environments. Through services offered by Symantec Global Services as well as integrated migration tools that leverage Altiris’ powerful endpoint management capabilities, these new offerings help companies of all sizes accelerate roll-outs and increase the benefits of comprehensive endpoint protection.

“Customers often miss opportunities to improve efficiencies when they don’t fully use technology solutions to their maximum potential,” said Greg Hughes, group president, Symantec Global Services. “These offerings can help ensure that customers get the most out of their endpoint security investments.”

Deployment, Migration and Integration Services

To help small businesses with fewer than 100 seats, Symantec’s new Remote Expert Installation Services use remote access technology to deploy Symantec Endpoint Protection securely over the Internet. These comprehensive technical implementation services include a pre-installation session with a Symantec specialist and are delivered at the customer’s convenience. For larger Symantec Endpoint Protection and Network Access Control environments, Symantec Consulting Services can provide assistance with solution design, deployment, migration, testing, and integration. In addition, Symantec will offer Symantec Endpoint Protection Integration Component, a free tool that leverages the Altiris endpoint management platform and eases the deployment of or migration to Symantec Endpoint Protection.

Residency and Managed Services

Symantec Endpoint Security Residency Services augment existing staff resources with highly qualified Symantec resident consultants who provide strategic direction, manage global migrations and deployments, develop comprehensive incident handling processes based on best practices, and offer enhanced reporting customized to the client’s business.
