DENVER, CO--(Marketwired - September 13, 2016) - Pax8, the leading value-added cloud distributor, today announced it will offer the new Symantec Endpoint Protection Cloud solution, providing small and mid-sized businesses (SMBs) enterprise-class security and real-time protection to its channel of solution providers. The revolutionary Symantec Endpoint Protection Cloud solution is built on an advanced cloud-based platform, deployable in less than five minutes.
"As cybersecurity threats continue to rise, more businesses are left vulnerable to sophisticated attacks such as zero day and targeted attacks," said Ryan Walsh, senior vice president of Partner Solutions. "Solution providers looking to protect their customers' endpoint devices need advanced, evolved security protections like artificial intelligence from machine learning, generic exploit mitigation, and behavioral-based technologies provided by Symantec. The easy to manage and fast to deploy features along with real-time protection enables solution providers to confidently offer Symantec Endpoint Protection Cloud to their customers."
Increasingly, trends such as Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) are leaving SMBs without the device management and protection they need to secure against vulnerabilities. Symantec Endpoint Protection Cloud enables solution providers to offer their customers protection with Symantec's global intelligence across 175 million control points. Additionally, Symantec Endpoint Protection Cloud comes equipped with advanced machine learning and behavioral analysis for protection that is always on and looking for new and unknown threats.
Symantec Endpoint Protection Cloud includes built-in features designed to manage and secure virtually any device. It provides a single cloud-based console for endpoint protection, management, mobility and encryption, bringing users a solution that simplifies management and operation costs.
"We are seeing SMBs becoming a target of advanced threats and they require comprehensive security just like large enterprises," said May Mitchell, vice president of worldwide channel marketing at Symantec. "With Symantec Endpoint Protection Cloud, Pax8 can help its SMB customers looking for a cost-effective and flexible solution that provides complete security across their network of devices."
