Symantec.cloud is a management platform that helps businesses administer, monitor, and protect enterprise information resources more effectively.
Our hosted services assist IT leaders in their effort to:
* Provide a secure computing environment
* Enforce acceptable use and regulatory policies
* Deliver ongoing access to critical applications
* Drive cost efficiencies into their organisations
* Organisations can choose from 15 pre-integrated applications to help meet business requirements even as new technologies and devices are introduced and traditional boundaries of the workplace disappear.
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 organisation’s exposure to risk.
We Believe That There is a Better Way
Symantec.cloud provides IT leaders with a centralised, hosted approach to security and information management that allows organisations 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 11 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 Symantec Intelligence report.
Technology Made More Powerful in the Cloud
Technology that Learns from Experience - Our proprietary heuristic technology, Skeptic, exemplifies technology that is actually made more powerful and accurate because it is delivered as a cloud service. It continually learns based on the volume of threats it sees and identifies. Skeptic uses thousands of rules and dozens of advanced techniques to detect malware including: application reputation, junk code analysis, and “link following.”
Combine Resources, Improve Service - Symantec.cloud services virtually eliminate the need for customers to manage service-related hardware or software. Services are delivered on a highly scalable, reliable and energy-efficient global infrastructure. The infrastructure is built on 15 datacenters around the globe. It utilises redundancy and load balancing to help maintain performance levels and service availability while managing spikes in email and Web traffic.
Use with Confidence
Symantec.cloud services are backed by industry leading Service Level Agreement. Our customers are familiar with this metric since we measure and publish our SLA results each month. We’re so confident in our ability to meet our SLAs that we back them with a money back remedy.
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 organisation’s business operation.
By using a hosted service, clients can avoid costs associated with other solutions, such as:
* Complex hardware or software
* Increased storage and bandwidth
* Dedicated technical staff
* Regular software updates
* Routine updates to spam and virus definitions
