Symantec launches new partner specialisations

04 Aug 10

Symantec has launched two new specialisations for partners in Asia Pacific and Japan that will provide qualified partners with better access to Symantec sales and technical resources.

The new IT Compliance and Foundational Enterprise Security specialisations offer qualified partners exclusive benefits designed to drive extra revenue.

“Symantec’s goal is to provide our partners with increased opportunities to be profitable with Symantec solutions, differentiate themselves with customers, maximise value and drive customer loyalty,” said David Dzienciol, Vice President, Channels and SMB, Asia Pacific and Japan, Symantec. 

“These new specialisations recognise partners who have demonstrated expertise in particular Symantec solutions and will provide resources they need to meet their customers’ needs. These additional specialisations further reinforce Symantec’s dedication to enabling partner competence in key solutions areas well before the enhanced Symantec Partner Program comes into effect at the end of 2010.”

Here are Symantec’s descriptions of the new specialisations:

Foundational Enterprise Security Specialisation

The Foundational Enterprise Security Specialisation recognises the expertise of qualified partners that provide Enterprise Security solutions. This specialisation requires partners to attain sales and technical accreditations, which ensures they are highly competent in selling and deploying Symantec Enterprise Security solutions. With this specialisation, partners can more effectively deliver solutions that solve their customers’ most critical security challenges.  The Enterprise Security Specialisation is available now to qualified Symantec Global Strategic, Platinum, Gold, Silver, Silver Corporate Reseller, Registered and Distribution partners.

IT Compliance Specialisation

The IT Compliance Specialisation offers benefits to qualified partners who are skilled in the implementation, measurement, and maintenance of compliance with security configuration standards, and in the definition and enforcement of compliance policies for IT governance and information protection. Symantec partners achieve IT Compliance Specialisation by demonstrating a strong commitment to deliver compliance solutions to enterprise customers, as defined and evaluated by Symantec. The IT Compliance Specialisation has limited availability, and participation is restricted to partners who are well versed in delivering solutions which ensure IT compliance with government regulations.
