IT Complexity Can Get in the Way of IT Success
IT executives increasingly operate in complex environments in which fewer things
seem in their direct control. This sense is driven by several factors.
Staying up-to-date with the latest technologies, trends, and security threats
with limited resources and without expert staffing is nearly impossible. The absence
of resources and expertise in these – and other areas – can hamper or derail implementation
and deployment initiatives.
Meanwhile, consistently administering acceptable use and regulatory policies
for a workforce that is constantly on the move, demanding access to increasing amounts
of data and information, while using a variety of devices, can represent a major
time and resource drain. Ineffectively managed environments can create security
and governance holes that increase an organization’s exposure to risk.
We Believe That There is a Better Way
Symantec.cloud provides IT leaders with a centralized, hosted approach to security
and information management that allows organizations to manage a complex collection
of technologies in a simple, more efficient and productive manner.
Shift the Burden - By moving to a hosted management platform, like Symantec.cloud,
IT departments can shift the burden associated with managing and monitoring security
and compliance to a third party. This allows CIOs to reallocate technical resources
to focus on issues that differentiate or otherwise enhance the competitive position
of their enterprise.
Get Productive & Stay Current - Symantec.cloud services can be deployed
rapidly – often in hours. Services stay current via automatic updates. Updates and
maintenance are included as part of the service fee as is around the clock support
that is delivered by dedicated specialists.
Benefit from the Experience of Others - With over 10.7 million end users
worldwide we have unmatched insight into the security, email, and policy management
challenges that our users face; it is a perspective and position IT departments
would be hard pressed to recreate on their own. We share emerging trends observed
in the traffic we manage with the community and our customers in our MessageLabs
Re-Inventing the IT Cost Structure
Cloud-based services have lower startup costs, reduce the need for upfront hardware
and software investments, long-term infrastructure commitments, and support contracts.
They also iron out the unpredictable costs associated with maintaining a dedicated,
internal staff on activities that may not be core to an organization’s business
By using a hosted service, clients can avoid costs associated with other solutions,
- Complex hardware or software
- Increased storage and bandwidth
- Dedicated technical staff
- Regular software updates
- Routine updates to spam and virus definitions
More than 10.7 million end users at more than 32,000 organizations ranging from
small businesses to the Fortune 500 use Symantec.cloud to secure and manage information
stored on endpoints and delivered via email, Web, and instant messaging. A division
within Symantec Corporation, Symantec.cloud offers customers the ability to work
more productively in a connected world.
