Symantec And Parallels Remove The Complexity Of Securing Websites And E-Commerce Transactions For Small And Medium Businesses

Symantec (Nasdaq: SYMC) and Parallels ( www.parallels.com), a hosting and cloud services enablement leader, today announced they have joined forces to help service providers and website designers grow their revenue with a vastly simplified process for customers to acquire Secure Socket Layer (SSL) certificates and other website security solutions. Service Providers and Web designers who use Parallels Plesk® Panel can now offer Symantec Easy SSL, a comprehensive Website Security portfolio including GeoTrust, Thawte, and other Symantec brands as part of a secure e-commerce solution. This integration will appeal to Small and Medium Businesses (SMBs) wanting to provide a safer Web experience to secure online connections, transactions and for protecting customers against malware threats. Parallels Plesk Panel now automates the process of ordering, acquiring and installing Symantec-issued SSL certificates, allowing hosters and other service providers to easily resell, provision and track revenue from SSL orders. This solution will be demonstrated during the Parallels APAC Summit in Singapore from September 21-22, 2012.

Parallels, as the world’s market share leader 1 in Web server automation and control panels, partnered with security technology leader Symantec to develop an easy to resell and deploy SSL certificate and website security solution, which is now integrated within Parallels Plesk Panel. Parallels teamed with Symantec based on the company’s experience as the global leader in providing SSL certificates, with more than 800,000 active SSL certificates issued worldwide and 65% of Extended Validation (Green Bar) certificates according to the July 2012 Netcraft report. Symantec’s Norton Secured Seal is the most recognized trust seal on the Internet, and provides rigorous SSL security and Certificate Authority policies along with 24/7 global support.

“Symantec and Parallels are keenly aware of the vast and growing potential to sell hosted and cloud services to the SMB market through the service provider and hosting channel,” said Fran Rosch, Vice President of Identity and Authentication Services, Symantec. “This alliance enables us to provide a greatly simplified SSL certificate solution for this channel that will make it easier for their SMB customers to communicate and transact securely.”
