Symantec has announced the launch of the Altiris Client Management Suite 7.0 and Altiris Server Management Suite 7.0.


Both offer better visibility into IT assets, simplified day-to-day manageability and improved end-user productivity. They also both automate manual management tasks, ensure business productivity tools and data are functioning properly, and help ensure license compliance.


The Client Management Suite 7.0 offers better control of the IT environment by streamlining efforts associated with deploying, managing, securing and troubleshooting client systems.


Meanwhile the Server Management Suite 7.0 provides the capabilities to discover, provision, manage and monitor server infrastructures across a range of platforms. Both also share the Symantec Management Console, allowing administrators to manage operations from a single point.


Francis deSouza, senior vice president of the enterprise security group at Symantec, said: “Client Management Suite 7.0 and Server Management Suite 7.0 provide the necessary automation and integration from a central location to help our customers reduce the time it takes to manage their assets, improve security and reduce operational costs.”
