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."
