By delivering Symantec Endpoint Protection Cloud, they can address all the endpoint security needs of end-user customers with a trusted, industry-leading solution and retain their customers as they migrate to the cloud. It also adds to the appeal of StreamOne as a cloud aggregation platform by bringing another major vendor into Tech Data’s cloud portfolio.”
Dominique Loiselet, vice president, EMEA Channel Sales at Symantec, said: “Tech Data is a long-standing and established distribution partner for Symantec. Tech Data’s extensive market reach and its ability to enable efficient deployment of cloud solutions through StreamOne mean that it is well positioned to support and enable our partners to migrate their SMB and mid-market customers to Symantec Endpoint Protection Cloud.”
StreamOne Cloud Marketplace was developed by Tech Data to provide its customers with the capability to manage the entire end-user lifecycle for consumption- and subscription-based cloud services. The marketplace includes tools and resources that enable resellers to learn about, buy and manage services.
In addition, Tech Data’s Cloud Solutions team provides specialist support to resellers, making it easier for them to engage on and benefit from vendor and service provider programs, and to transition their business models.
