ALSO adds Norton Small Business to its cloud security offering

ALSO is broadening its Cloud Marketplace with Symantec’s Norton Small Business, a cybersecurity solution customized to support and protect businesses with fewer than 20 employees. The product builds on Symantec’s existing security suite with a flexible design that enables businesses to add protection to new devices as their needs evolve.

According to recent Symantec research, most ransomware threats are indiscriminate and the infection experience is similar for businesses and consumers. However, a small number of groups have begun to specifically target businesses with ransomware attacks designed to infect multiple computers on a single network and encrypt valuable data. Leveraging one of the world’s largest civilian cyber intelligence networks, Norton Small Business helps to defend against the most sophisticated attacks across multiple platforms, including Windows PCs, Macs, Android smartphones and tablets, as well as iPhones and iPads. In addition to Norton’s advanced antivirus, anti-malware, and anti-phishing technologies, Norton Small Business also includes Norton’s Mobile Insight app-scanning technology, which helps to identify malicious or dodgy Android apps before they are installed. The product also includes remote lock-and-wipe capabilities to manage lost or stolen devices. No IT skills are required for installation.

“Adding the professional Norton security portfolio to the ALSO Cloud Marketplace allows us to deliver a full-service package to our resellers. With Norton Small Business, we can provide a flexible product that combines multi-layered protection with an easy-to-use subscription service,” said Aleksi Partanen, Senior Vice President Digital Services of ALSO Holding AG.

“The ALSO Cloud Marketplace opens up an important new avenue for us to reach small businesses. Because many of these businesses lack IT departments to protect themselves against mounting cyber risks, we believe our partnership with ALSO represents an opportunity to equip these organizations with our trusted security solution,” said Robert den Drijver, BeneNord Consumer Territory Director for Symantec.

Norton Small Business is now available in the ALSO Cloud Marketplace.
