Solution Providers Find New Security Software Through CA

Solution providers can soon enjoy all the security software provided by CA. According to senior vice president of SMB and consumer channel sales at CA George Kafkarkou, CA will make its Protection Suite, Server Protection Suite and Business Protection Suite products accessible to solution providers through Ingram Micro, Tech Data, Synnex and D& H Distributing. The computer software vendor based in Islandia, NY planned to announce the move in a public webcast on March 23.

The three Protection Suites were first released in July, but until recently were only available online through sites such as CDW and CA’s online store. Kafkarkou believes the move to make the software more available to solution providers will help the product gain more visibility and popularity.

CA’s protection suite includes antivirus, antispyware and system restoration applications in one package. The company offers the Desktop Protection Suite for PCs and laptops, the Server Protection Suite for servers and the Business Protection Suite that can be used on both servers and desktops.

CA also offers Business Protection Suite items that can be used in conjunction with Microsoft Small Business Server (SBS) Standard Edition and Premium Edition. The SBS types of the suites have been available to solution providers since their release.
