Symantec has added a new specialisation to its partner programme to cover mobility solutions.
The Mobility Solution Specialisation comes from what the company describes as "the enormous pressure being placed on businesses today to allow employees to use mobile devices". The new specialisation provides recognition for Symantec partners who have acquired comprehensive knowledge and expertise in Symantec’s mobility solutions.
At the core of the Mobility Solution Specialisation are Mobile Application Management (MAM), Mobile Device Management (MDM) and Mobile Security, giving organisations granular control over their mobile deployments and offering different levels of oversight on mobile devices, according to customers’ specific policies and needs.
According to the security vendor, Mobility Solution Specialisation is relevant for Microsoft and Apple partners in addition to Symantec’s own Enterprise Security and Endpoint Management Specialised partners.
Partner benefits include margin points as well as licensing, services and hardware revenue, as well as acess to teh Symantec Opportunity Registration Programme.
Partners will also be granted access to training, tools and technical resources as well as access to the Beta Product Programme – all of which are available to partners who become specialists. In addition, the Mobility Solution Specialisation provides partners with the opportunity to achieve higher recognition levels within the partner programme and become a platinum, gold or silver partner.
“As technology continues to evolve in the business world, partners must be continually adjusting and broadening their offerings in order to address ever-changing needs and provide the value their customers expect,” says Mark Shaw, principal systems engineer, Endpoint Management & Mobility, Pacific region. “In response to this, Symantec’s Mobility Solution Specialisation – in addition to the other 11 specialisations – provides partners with the tools and resources needed to increase their marketability, drive additional revenue and get the job done.”
