ITS Sets Altiris, Symantec Program: Got 30 minutes? Learn how you can receive assistance with your Altiris, Symantec Workflow & Symantec Security Solutions. The Webinar will be held Tuesday, Oct. 16 at 11 a.m. Eastern time. As the responsibilities of IT Departments continue to expand, there is a growing need. You purchased Symantec software, and while it seems to be working fine, you may find yourself or your company looking at one of three different scenarios. First, you know the software is working correctly. However, you know the software is also capable of more and there are additional benefits available if you had the knowledge or time to dedicate to this. Second, it seems like the software is working correctly, and you really have no idea if there are other benefits available. Third, the software is functioning correctly, but it does not seem to be fitting well in your environment or with your current processes. The Support and Engineer Team at ITS contains over 40 experts in all things Symantec. We understand these scenarios and the frustrations they can cause. In this short Webcast, we will review how ITS can provide assistance to you and your team in all three of these areas.
