Threatscape provides business-critical IT security and management solutions & services to clients in Ireland, the UK and elsewhere.
The latest version of Symantec's Internet Security Threat Report is now available, and contains an overview and analysis of global threat activity in 2012.
It details a 42% increase in targeted attacks in 2012, with 31% of them aimed at businesses with less than 250 employees (a 3x increase from 2011). Poor web security is allowing attackers to spread malware via legitimate web sites, which they compromise using attack toolkits to distribute malware by exploiting unpatched vulnerabilities in visitors systems, particularly web browser plug-ins.

However, to assist potential clients in assessing Threatscape as a potential partner, we do have a number of case studies available on request which we have prepared with the agreement of existing customers - and which detail the large scale solutions we have deployed and supported in multiple technology areas.
Your account manager at Threatscape can provide you with those case studies (or contact details for reference customers) which are most relevant to your areas of interest.
Symantec Platinum PartnerSymantec operate a four-level program for their channel partners. The initial level of 'registered partner' is assigned to organisations when they first enroll and have not gained any technical accreditations - 'registered' indicates merely that they have completed an application form. Partners who are able to meet Symantec requirements for technical expertise and commercial activity can progress over time to 'silver', 'gold' - and ultimately 'platinum' status. Platinum Partner status has the highest associated qualification pre-requisites and is awarded only to a very select number of Symantec's most elite partners.
Threatscape are product to have been awarded the dual accolades of 'Platinum Partner' and 'Security Specialist' by Symantec - the highest level of accreditation in their recently revised partner program.
We are the only Symantec partner in Ireland or the UK to have achieved this distinction (and one of the first three in all of EMEA), something we achieved only after the completion of a rigorous assessment process involving multiple written and on-site evaluations of our commercial and technical personnel.
Symantec Security SpecialistSymantec Specializations, which recognize proven expertise in a particular area of business, enable Symantec Partners to align their technology expertise with customers' needs. Symantec encourages customers to engage with their most highly qualified Specialist Partners as they have demonstrated proven experience in delivering superior customer value in a variety of solution areas and market segments.
The technology areas in which Symantec have awarded Threatscape 'Specialist' status are:
Symantec Data Loss Prevention Specialist Partners have proven expertise in helping business customers discover, monitor, and protect confidential and proprietary information.
Endpoint Management Solutions Specialization
Symantec Endpoint Management Specialist Partners have proven expertise in delivering Altiris solutions that help customers address the growing need to contain the high cost and complexity associated with managing endpoints.
Enterprise Security Solutions Specialization
Symantec Enterprise Security Specialist Partners have proven expertise in delivering and supporting endpoint security solutions that help customers solve issues created by the growing range, sophistication, and focus of internal and external IT threats.
Technical ChampionOur technical director Alan Roche has been appointed by Symantec as 'Technical Champion' for their endpoint security products - a distinction bestowed on a very small number of engineers (and limited to no more than one per country). This recognises Alan's exceptional track record in the design and deployment of large scale customer solutions using the Symantec suits of endpoint security products - in particular Symantec Endpoint Protection for anti-virus. As technical champion, Alan is afforded an unprecedented level of access to Symantec personnel, technology and resources
