SALT LAKE CITY — January 27, 2016 — Furthering its vision to
modernize IT, LANDESK today announced the release of LANDESK Management Suite
2016, LANDESK Security Suite 2016 and the introduction of LANDESK Mobile
Security Suite 2016. These updates give users greater visibility, streamline
security and increase automation to further empower users and simplify IT.
"LANDESK Management Suite and Security Suite are at the
heart of our business and technology strategy. The underlying technologies not
only help IT manage and protect the devices in their environment, but they also
provide a rich data set that our service management and IT asset management
offerings leverage,” said Duane Newman, senior director of product management
at LANDESK. “This gives IT unparalleled visibility into what is happening in
the environment, and it provides the underlying capabilities required to take
action when change is needed. The 2016 updates extend those capabilities to natively
support mobile devices, to improve access and visibility and to provide more
automation capabilities than ever before.”
LANDESK brings users a truly unified endpoint management
(UEM) experience with Management Suite 2016. This product now offers full mobile
device management capabilities as part of its industry-leading client
management solution, allowing organizations to manage devices, packages and workflows
for PCs, Macs, Linux, Chromebooks and now iOS and Android devices — all from a
single interface and a single server. This allows teams to gather
device-related data, quickly assess what is happening in their environments and
to streamline management workflows to automatically deliver the appropriate software
to each platform.
This simplified administrative workflow allows system
administrators to target individuals or groups with specific policies or
packages, with UEM capabilities that ensures each device gets the necessary
changes and apps. For more security-focused organizations, the new LANDESK Mobile
Security Suite comes as an add-on to the UEM platform.
As part of this movement to modernize IT, LANDESK has also
improved and expanded the functionality of its Workspaces platform across the
portfolio. These improvements empower organizations by providing an intuitive,
role-driven experience that changes the way users interact with their tools, and
offers a clean, simple user interface. This streamlined approach makes it
easier to ensure devices are properly managed without impacting end users.
In addition to other
enhancements, Security Suite 2016 introduces LANDESK Workspaces for the
Security Admin, which helps connect security and IT operations by providing a
view, which highlights the security posture of the devices on the network, and helps
prioritize remediation opportunities. It gives deep visibility into devices so
admins can see what needs to be patched or where they may be vulnerable.
LANDESK further empowers IT by providing features in Management
Suite 2016 and Security Suite 2016 that automate the rollout process of both
large and small software projects, including software deployments and patching.
This feature simplifies repetitive software distribution projects by automating
staged rollout processes to progress from smaller pilot groups all the way up
to enterprise-wide distributions. It also improves project visibility with a
built-in Gantt chart and automated emails, making project timelines simple to
manage from within the tool.
Secure Mobile Email, Application
Wrapping, Secure Mobile Browser
LANDESK’s Mobile Security Suite delivers several advanced
mobile technologies, including secure mobile email, which provides users with
protected access to corporate email and any attachments from personal mobile
devices, using the native email client for each device type. The solution also
gives users secure access to content, such as calendars through the user’s
preferred email application.
Along with secure email, Mobile Security Suite also includes
app wrapping, which secures corporate native applications and associated data
from data leaks and possible malware exposure from end users’ personal
applications. The suite also introduces secure web browsing for mobile devices,
providing users with easy access to internal corporate websites and intranets
without the need for a VPN or additional log-ins and passwords.
