Making the complex simple

28 Oct 14

Westcon Imagine 2014 - Even as individuals and organisations realise the potential agility and cost saving benefits of cloud computing, concerns about security and availability of clouds persist.

But Symantec.Cloud says there are blue skies ahead – if you are protected when you move to the cloud.

The security company says the path to a protected and confident cloud can be scattered with potholes.

“While the move to the cloud often yields operational efficiencies and business agility, it must not increase your availability or security vulnerabilities.

“Cloud outages and cloud breaches can be avoided with an approach that aligns with your IT investment strategy.”

The company says whether you want to consume cloud services directly, build your own cloud for internal operations or external reach, or extend into third-party clouds safely and efficiently, it has a path to a protected cloud to help companies be more confident in their cloud.

The company offers a range of solutions in the cloud including Endpoint Protection, Web Security, Email Filtering, Data Loss Prevention, Email Archiving, Email Continuity and Multi-factor Authentication.

Westcon partnered with Symantec in February to distribute their cloud service portfolio, enabling businesses to reduce infrastructure costs, enable secure access for employees and guarantee performance of their critical applications.
