Lab Delivers Safe Environment for Customized Product Demonstrations
SANTA CLARA, Calif., June 12 - McAfee, Inc. (NYSE:MFE), the global leader in Intrusion Prevention and Security Risk Management, today announced enhancements to its Global Support Lab, an innovative resource designed to provide McAfee® SecurityAlliance(TM) partners and their customers with instant online access to McAfee products within a safe environment. The lab allows for convenient testing, evaluation and training of McAfee hardware and software solutions from anywhere in the world, without having to purchase or deploy a product.
"The McAfee Global Support Lab is an extremely useful resource that allows on- demand access to real product environments for demonstrations, trainings and simulated deployment scenarios," said Billy Roberts, manager of Technical Assessment Services at Software Spectrum, Inc. "By leveraging the lab we are able to increase our ability to showcase McAfee solutions by giving demonstrations of the products directly from our client's own desktop and recommend or suggest additional products based on customer requests in real-time."
Key benefits of The Global Support Lab include:
o Demonstrations and Evaluations On Demand -- Online and accessible worldwide, The Global Support Lab enables resellers to easily demonstrate all of McAfee's latest products to customers from any location within a safe lab environment -- without having to maintain an inventory of demonstration hardware and software or to ship it to customer sites. It is easy to access and there is no charge for using the On-Demand services. o Custom Configurations -- The Global Support Lab can also replicate customer environments for pre-deployment testing or unique evaluation requirements. o Increased Revenue Opportunities -- The ability to quickly and easily switch between product demonstrations allows partners to show customers the benefits of other products they may be interested in. Additionally, customer registration and use information is sent to the partner to inform them of a customer's interest in a product, providing sales and up-sell opportunities. o McAfee Training -- Partners can quickly provide hands-on access to the latest McAfee products for new hires and customers, while video tutorials provide simple how-to guides on the capabilities and correct installation of those products.
