How much time and how many touchpoints are needed to remediate a client with security updates? Did you know Altiris Out-of-band management has a network filtering option which used the System Defense capabilities built into Intel vPro? Essentially - you can isolate a computer at the client's network interface. Even better, you can keep certain ports\communication open to ONLY the designated Altiris Notification Server - thus allowing delivery of critical software updates!!

What traditionally might involve network teams (to place a system onto a remediation network), client support teams (to deploy the software), and support operation teams (to handle the helpdesk calls) - could automated and resolved much quicker.

We'll be stepping through this at ManageFusion 08 in The Hague (Oct 7-9) and Orlando (Oct 14-16). The hands-on lab is "AP LO2 - Intel: Eliminate Network Attacks During Remote Software Deployment" - two sessions of the same lab scheduled!

If you're not able to attend - the following reference materials and insights may be of interest:

During one of the ManageFusion hands-on labs, a great "testimonial" was mentioned about how vPro with System Defense network filters and software delivery from Altiris CMS could be combined to secure a client during the brief period when no security software is installed.

If unsure what 5 minutes "in the open" could do -read this interesting article dated Oct 21, 2008 - http://www.oregonlive.com/business/oregonian/index...
