Symantec has detailed the Encryption Solutions Specialisation, which has been designed to give experienced partners the chance to drive more revenue.  

The new specialisation is awarded to those who have the sales and technical accreditation for Symantec’s encryption products, including PGP Encryption and Symantec Endpoint Encryption.

Symantec says that the specialisation marks the integration of PGP Corporation and GuardianEdge Technologies channel partners into the Symantec Partner Programme.
