Symantec has unveiled changes to its ExSP Licencing Programme, which offers its service partners the choice of buying Symantec software in a monthly subscription-based model.
The programme is designed to help partners who sell Symantec-based services reduce their upfront costs and accelerate profitability.
There are no financial requirements for entry and the programme will enable traditional Symantec partners of all sizes, especially small and mid-sized business (SMB) partners, to more easily develop their own managed services offerings, the firm says.
“Symantec is expanding its footprint in the managed services market across the channel,” said Jeff Arndt, director, Enterprise Channels, Symantec Pacific region. “The new ExSP subscription-based programme offers a flexible, predictable method of purchasing Symantec software and requires no minimum financial investment, making it accessible to our broad base of partners. This new licencing model is designed to match the way partners do business with their customers.”
