Altiris Treats Viruses with Security Suite
Vulnerability Management Rises High on List of Concerns

Altiris has said  that it is the only vendor to take a comprehensive, multi-layered approach to IT security that helps protect business assets against human, network and system-level threats and vulnerabilities.

As part of this security management strategy, Altiris, based in Salt Lake City, today introduced Security Suite as the first suite of products built to help IT organizations streamline security vulnerability assessment, audit and remediation, and also announced the Center for Internet Security’s (CIS) certification of SecurityExpressions as the only audit and compliance solution certified for HP-UX, Solaris, Windows and Linux.

The multi-layered approach works to protect business and computing assets from rapidly proliferating security threats. Altiris technologies include vulnerability audit and assessment, threat remediation, application-level software virtualization, and network, hardware and software authorization and control.

According to Forrester Research, IT is in the process of evolving its approach to risk and compliance and is moving to a point where technology is used in business to build a ‘risk central nervous system’ that monitors risk and compliance thresholds across the organization in real time. This new direction is a more strategic and effective approach when compared to the current situation -- proactively managing risk and compliance within the IT department.
