Pro Technology and Symantec team up for Saudi events

by Stuart Wilson, Tuesday 2 September 2008

Security solutions powerhouse Symantec teamed up with Middle East partner Pro Technology for two events in Saudi Arabia, designed to showcase the latest in data management and security solutions. Pro Technology claims that the Kingdom accounts for 40% of IT spending in the Middle East with strong demand from both SMBs abd large enterprises for more robust and high performance solutions.

The first of the two seminars held in Jeddah discussed Symantec’s enterprise vault solution, a flexible e-mail archiving framework. In addition, the seminar provided businesses with the know-how to choose the right technology and to further boost their operations by jumpstarting their archiving projects.

“The KSA IT market is among the fastest growing regional markets at present, with industry indicators pointing towards more accelerated growth in the near future. An increasing number of organisations in the Kingdom are recognising the benefits of adopting latest technology, thereby boosting the demand for advanced IT solutions,” said Jamal Maraqa, managing director at Pro Technology.

”We are convinced of the excellent potential of Symantec’s archiving framework in Saudi Arabia, given the success of the enterprise vault seminar, which has been well received by companies who have identified the benefits of a well-maintained data storage project,” he added.

“By presenting a highly scalable option and giving out best practice guidance with regards to archiving and storage strategies through Symantec Enterprise Vault, we have opened up the opportunity for these companies to leverage the advantages of adopting a robust archiving framework,” Maraqa concluded.

The second seminar in KSA was held in Al Khobar, where participants were introduced to Symantec’s Veritas netbackup solution. The event showcased the electronic data managing capabilities of this solution, which has been designed to be more efficient and cost effective.

In addition, meetings were held with the attendees to help them determine the best Symantec solution mix for their existing IT environment, and to aid them in devising a practical plan to implement it. Pro Technology is a Symantec platinum partner.

’We have witnessed tremendous support from our current clientele in their participation in this seminar, as well as from companies who are facing considerable challenges in terms of data security issues,” concluded Maraqa.
