Enhancements to McAfee's Global Support Lab will allow partners and customers to remotely test, evaluate and demonstrate solutions on McAfee hardware and software.
Enhancements to McAfee's Global Support Lab will allow the vendor's SecurityAlliance partners and customers to remotely test, evaluate and demonstrate solutions on McAfee hardware and software.
The free offering allows partners on-demand access to real product environments that are custom-configured to replicate customer environments for demonstrations, training and simulated deployment scenarios, McAfee and partners said.
Remote, on-demand access eliminates the need to maintain an inventory of demonstration hardware and software and orders to ship it to customer sites, McAfee said.
The program may also drive attach by allowing partners to switch between products and demonstrate the benefits of additional solutions, McAfee executives said in a prepared statement.
Also, McAfee will send customer registration and inform partners of a customer's interest in a product, providing sales and up-sell opportunities.
