Symantec Integrates Management Apps
Apparently, Symantec's purchase of Altiris, now about a year old, is going
fairly well. The security giant released a mega-suite this week called Endpoint
Management Suite 1.0
It's got just about everything in it that a product of that name would seem
to have, and Kevin Murray, senior director of product marketing at Symantec
(and not the former Texas A&M quarterback) said that everything in the new
suite actually works together.
"These things are well-integrated," Murray said. "They're not
just a bundle of products that have separate installers."
At the heart of it all is Altiris Client Management Suite 6, which Symantec
bought when it snapped up the Utah-based vendor last year. "It helps customers
get hold of an IT lifecycle of an endpoint," Murray said. "It's really
the center of the product."
