McAfee to aggressively target SMB's

McAfee recently announced the launch of the SMB Specialization within the McAfee SecurityAlliance program (MSA) to enable partners to improve profitability while addressing the unique needs of SMB customers.

McAfee SMB specialization is a program that enables partners to sell targeted security solutions to customers with less than 250 employees. By enrolling in this, partners can offer their customers email, web, data and endpoint security solutions, with on-premise or SaaS delivery models. Also, program partners can take advantage of a monthly billing option, a full range of enablement tools, turnkey marketing programs, and dedicated resources.

This is supported by the Partner Acceleration Resource Center (PARC), an online resource center which provides McAfee SMB partners a full-time access to the information needed by channel partners to more easily drive new SMB business and expand existing business with SMB customers.

“McAfee is committed to expanding business opportunities for McAfee SecurityAlliance Partners. The growing SMB space offers attractive cross-sell, up-sell, and service revenue opportunities for our partners.  With the McAfee SMB Specialization partners can simplify and accelerate their success in the SMB space,” said Alex Thurber, Senior Vice President of Worldwide Channels at McAfee.
