SEP Small Business Edition 12.0 has a number of optimizations to ensure it “simply” works in a Small Business environment. One of the those features is the Intelligent live Update capability which I will discuss in this blog.

One of the key things that administrators struggle with is ensuring that all the endpoints within their company have the latest virus definitions, IPS signatures, and other updates. This becomes more challenging with users that don’t connect to the corporate network often enough to download the latest updates from the management server.

Some solutions that we have seen small business customers implement is to install “Unmanaged clients” on computers that are always on the road. Unmanaged clients get their updates directly from Symantec servers but these systems don’t report back to the customer’s management server. The challenge with this approach is that the administrator does not get a status nor can he...

Another tool to add in your USB memory key to use in case of emergency. The KillProcess tool is a perfect killer for your applications.

Trying to audit with a rule that must iterate through all user profiles who have logged in to Windows?

Here's a tip that should make your day.

Product: SecurityExpressions
Version: 3.4, 4.0

Recently when customizing a .sif file to create a Windows Server 2003 security baseline audit, I spent hours trying to figure out why a particular rule would not iterate all NTUSER.DAT files. I followed the instructions in the User Guide with Documentation Date of February 28, 2007 on page 315 in section "Use an Iterator to Audit all Registry Profiles on Remote Systems" and in the Altiris Knowledgebase BUT the audit would not "iterate over all the NTUSER.DAT files that exist on the system" (Altiris, Inc., 2007) as documented. The audit only found the .default Windows user profile.

I stumbled upon a solution playing...

NOW HEAR THIS! SecurityExpressions functionality is now in the Notification server. The release of the Audit Integration Component allows your organization to leverage SecurityExpressions auditing for compliance and configuration drift through your NS. You can download the Audit Integration in the Solution center in the NS. This solution will also install Task Server for you (which is free) and will give you pre-canned tasks for auditing. Very cool.
