MSPs can use LabTech's RMM tools to deploy, set up, manage, and monitor backup and endpoint security across multiple domains

TAMPA, Fla., Nov. 26, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- LabTech Software, the makers of the only powerful, robust-featured remote monitoring and management (RMM) platform developed by a managed service provider (MSP) for managed service providers, today announced the availability of the companies' integration of LabTech managed services software with Symantec Backup Exec and Symantec Endpoint Protection solutions, providing enterprise-class protection designed for MSPs.

With this integrated approach to managed data protection, MSPs can use LabTech's RMM tools to deploy, set up, manage and monitor backup and endpoint security across multiple domains, customers and offices from centralized consoles and locations in single-pane-of-glass views. Symantec Endpoint Protection and Symantec Endpoint Protection Small Business Edition 2013 are supported in the LabTech Multivendor Antivirus Dashboard and Symantec Backup Exec and Symantec Backup Exec Small Business Edition are supported in the LabTech Multivendor Backup Dashboard.

Symantec, a global leader in security, storage and systems management solutions, is a member of the LabTech Technology Alliance Partner Program (TAPP), which allows integration and collaboration to provide value-added solutions to LabTech partners. While LabTech has supported mature third-party antivirus software and backup options, Symantec has strong name recognition among end users, enabling LabTech partners to capitalize on new opportunities and drive greater profits.

"MSPs are supporting larger and larger environments, and this integration allows us to bring true enterprise-class backup and antivirus solutions that are trusted and used by Fortune 500 companies to the LabTech community," said Matt Nachtrab, LabTech Software CEO. "We work closely with our vendor partners to ensure each integration release truly solves real-world issues MSPs face on a day to day basis, and Symantec has heard and met these challenges with innovative backup and security products."

"Symantec is dedicated to providing industry-leading solutions to the MSP community to help them grow their businesses and succeed. By working with partners like LabTech, we are able to deliver the right solutions to service providers that are flexible, easy to manage and cost effective," said Stephen Banbury, Vice President of Worldwide Channel and Alliance Marketing at Symantec.

Symantec Backup Exec and Symantec Backup Exec Small Business Edition are integrated products that protect virtual and physical environments, simplify both backup and disaster recovery, and offer unmatched recovery capabilities.

Powered by Symantec V-Ray technology, Backup Exec V-Ray Edition for VMware, Hyper-V and other virtualized environments quickly restores virtual machines, single files to entire servers, and critical Microsoft applications to dramatically minimize business downtime.

Symantec Endpoint Protection and Symantec Endpoint Protection Small Business Edition 2013 are fast and powerful endpoint security solutions for both virtual and physical systems providing state-of-the-art defense against all types of attacks. They seamlessly integrate essential security tools into a single, high-performance agent with a single management console.
