Altiris To Release ESS Security Package
Altiris, Inc., last week announced the Altiris Endpoint Security Solution,
a package meant to help IT set a balance between security and business productivity.
Endpoint Security Solution automates the enforcement of security policies that
adjust to unique user environments, shields PCs from malware and hackers, and
maintains and supports established security policies and technologies, according
to a statement from the Salt Lake City, Utah-based company.
"Altiris Endpoint Security Solution will be integrated with the Altiris
architecture and configuration management database to provide a cohesive, multi-faceted
solution to help protect data and enhance business security and productivity,"
Dwain Kinghorn, Altiris' chief technology officer, said in the statement.
"Endpoint Security Solution delivers extended protection to the PC that
is not available from typical VPN, anti-virus, anti-spyware and patch management
products...[it provides] control of network connectivity, wireless communications
and removable storage devices," the statement continued.
Senforce Technologies has been working with Altiris to provide Endpoint Security
Solution, and has integrated its location-aware endpoint security capabilities
to be natively manageable from the Altiris console.
Altiris Endpoint Security Solution will be available in the third quarter,
starting at $70 per node.
