LANDesk Software Increases Macintosh Enterprise SecurityLANDesk Trusted Access technology supports a network hardware independent implementation (January 11, 2006)
LANDesk Software, a leading provider of integrated systems and security management solutions, announced today at Macworld Expo that it is extending its security management leadership with Macintosh OS X support for the LANDesk Trusted Access solution. LANDesk will also provide full compatibility and management support for the Intel-based Macintosh systems. LANDesk's initiative with this announcement is to drive the development of tools to successfully manage heterogeneous network environments.
Using LANDesk Trusted Access technology, LANDesk(R) Security Suite lets IT managers stop infected or unprotected systems from connecting to corporate network as well as protect corporate resources from connected systems that become corrupt. Quarantined systems are then stepped through the appropriate remediation steps to bring them into compliance with corporate policies before being granted access and released onto the network.
LANDesk Trusted Access technology supports a network hardware independent implementation, to help ensure security policy compliance for devices connecting to the network for greater protection against blended threats.
The addition of LANDesk Trusted Access functionality for Macintosh OS X is available as part of the LANDesk 8.6.1 service pack being distributed to existing customers and available for purchase in January 2006.
LANDesk will demonstrate support for the new LANDesk Trusted Access functionality, in booth #2638 at Macworld Expo.
LANDesk will also provide full compatibility and management support for Intel-based Macintoshes. LANDesk will provide the same comprehensive support for Intel-based Macintosh computers that it offers for current Mac OS X computers. This will enable enterprises to quickly integrate Intel-based Macs into their existing environment with minimal impact. LANDesk is the first vendor in the systems and security management space to successfully address enterprise manageability in a truly heterogeneous network environment.
