    EXPEDITED ACCESS TO A SUPPORT TEAM THAT UNDERSTANDS YOUR COMPLEX ENVIRONMENT

    With Business Critical Services, you have an inside track to our most experienced support

    technicians and the quickest route to issue resolution. You’ll speak with advanced support

    engineers who have a depth of knowledge in a specific technology discipline, putting you

    directly in contact with the elite technical expertise your business demands. You will talk

    with the team trained to solve complex issues, by-passing the frontline support team.

    WE’RE NOT JUST YOUR SUPPORT TEAM—WE’RE PART OF YOUR BUSINESS

    Symantec Business Critical Services cultivates a close, ongoing working relationship

    between your organization and ours. We’re not just your support team; we’re part of

    your business. We are your advocate within and link into the Symantec Corporation.

    Working alongside your team and your disparate IT groups, we learn how your complex

    environment functions. You can trust us to help you resolve issues faster, and help you

    mitigate security or availability threats.

    As you select greater coverage across products or locations, you will experience increased

    account management and proactive planning. Product-specific coverage is supported by a

    Remote Product Specialist who is an expert in one particular product category. This

    technical contact works to solve your product-specific critical issues and is backed by a

    team that will assist you outside of normal business hours.

    If you have multiple Symantec technologies deployed across a single datacenter or

    worldwide, our Business Critical Services DataCenter, National, and Global packages may

    be right for you. When you select coverage across products, you are assigned a Symantec

    Business Critical Account Manager as a single point of contact who is focused on your

    success. You will receive:

    • Personalized account planning and management services providing proactive advice

    and assistance for Symantec security or availability products.

    • Expedited access to alerts and collaborative remediation planning.

    • Remote or onsite support services.

    Your Business Critical Account Manager can access resources from anywhere in the

    Symantec organization to help deliver the availability and security solutions you need.

  • PERSONALIZED, PROACTIVE, RESPONSIVE, EXCLUSIVE:A COMBINATION OF OUR MOST ADVANCED SERVICES KEEPS YOUR IT ASSETS AVAILABLE AND SECURE.

    PERSONALIZED ACCOUNT PLANNING, PROACTIVE ASSESSMENTS, REPORTS, AND ALERTS

    Planning begins from day one with Symantec Business Critical Services. Depending on the

    service package you select, we work with you to create an Account Support Plan that outlines

    the unique support requirements of your operational environment. A Network Link Assessment

    is also conducted by a Business Critical Engineer to help identify and address underlying

    problems in your network that may lead to degraded performance in your applications.

    Through quarterly meetings, we review your Case History Reports and progress against your

    Account Support Plan. These quarterly reviews allow us to help you identify recurring support

    issues and trends, and take action to continuously improve the support of your Symantec

    availability and security solutions.

    In addition to ongoing Impact Alerts, reports that identify and help prevent potential

    software functionality issues, we provide Symantec Early Warning Services to further bolster

    your security solutions. Two different service offerings are available to provide detailed

    vulnerability analyses, risk mitigation recommendations, and reliable insights

    that are tailored to your unique business needs:

    Symantec DeepSight™ Threat Management System alerts customers to targeted attacks and is

    the first early warning service to offer security alerts with risk ratings for potentially unwanted

    programs such as adware and spyware. These highly personalized alerts provide actionable

    information to help organizations mitigate vulnerabilities before they can be exploited.

    Symantec DeepSight Alert Services provide personalized vulnerability, malicious code,

    and new spyware and adware alerts, along with mitigation information and links to

    patches to bridge the gap between security awareness and action.

    ACCESS TO TECHNICAL EXPERTISE, ONSITE OR REMOTE

    Should you require onsite assistance for a critical issue at a production location,

    a Business Critical Engineer can be dispatched to your location to resolve the issue onsite,

    in collaboration with your staff and our global support center resources.

    EXCLUSIVE SYMANTEC EDUCATION OPPORTUNITIES

    User knowledge is your first line of defense against downtime and security threats. As a

    Business Critical Services customer, you have exclusive access to education opportunities

    that strengthen your organization’s in-house expertise. In addition to a free skills assessment

    and education discounts, your IT staff is able to participate in Symantec Technical Services

    education, which is otherwise only available to our own support engineers.
