"One of the biggest challenges faced by businesses today is to safeguard mission-critical data from Internet security threats and data loss without the complexities of managing those solutions."

Its local IT system consists of 250 desktop and laptop computers, multiple wired and wireless networks, business and educational applications, telepresence equipment and digital tools for the labs. These technologies generate as much as 30G byte of data per month and it is critical that networks be free of spam and malware.
Two weeks and two days
"We were given a very limited timeframe to complete the transition to a cloud-based infrastructure," said Martyn Yap, IT manager at PSB Academy. "Thanks to the IT expertise provided by Symantec and their partner Jardine OneSolution, the deployment was quick and fuss free. Our management and their internal IT team are very pleased with the progress made and this sentiment is echoed by our helpdesk specialists, who have also praised the efficiency of Symantec's solutions."
The Symantec Endpoint Protection.cloud and Symantec MessageLabs Email Security.cloud safeguard endpoints against spam and malware. Symantec Backup Exec -- with agents for VMware, Microsoft Exchange, SQL Server, Active Directory and Windows Servers -- provides intelligent backup and recovery capabilities.
No less control
"One of the biggest challenges faced by businesses today is to safeguard mission-critical data from Internet security threats and data loss without the complexities of managing those solutions," said Bjorn Engelhardt, vice president of Strategic Sales for Asia Pacific and Japan at Symantec. "This issue is exacerbated as organizations typically operate under stringent IT demands with limited resources. Symantec's cloud-based security solutions enabled PSB Academy to not only improve their IT operational efficiency but also significantly reduce their security risk."
