IT Business Leader Expands Relationship with Symantec; Earns Authorization to Sell and Support Symantec’s Full Integrated Cyber Defense Portfolio
IRVINE, Calif. – April. 19, 2017 – Building on its success in advanced IT security, Ingram Micro Inc. is now a key global distribution partner for Symantec and an authorized distributor for the network security portfolio Symantec gained through its acquisition of Blue Coat last August.
“With Symantec and Ingram Micro as part of our partner ecosystem, we are empowered and enabled to deliver the advanced managed security services and solutions businesses need to confidently capitalize on the business-building benefits of cloud computing,” said Pat Grillo, Chairman of the Board, Atrion, an Ingram Micro channel partner.
Under the new scope, Ingram Micro will expand its reach from multi-regional to global, and support Symantec’s Integrated Cyber Defense enterprise portfolio including endpoint, email, data loss prevention, data center, cloud security and secure web gateway solutions.
