University of North Florida
North America |
Since implementing Symantec Endpoint Protection and Altiris Client Management Suite, the University of North Florida has been able to consolidate its systems management processes under one console and has virtually eliminated malware in its environment.
One person at a large public university uses Altiris Client Management Suite to deploy, maintain, and manage a fleet of 3,700 desktop and laptop computers. Some systems are used by individuals, while others reside in public computer labs. After a straightforward in-house deployment, Altiris was leveraged to upgrade hundreds of computers to the latest version of Symantec Endpoint Protection, saving hundreds of hours that would have been spent on manual installations. Altiris maintains the PC asset inventory, helps support staff to deploy and reimage computers, and identifies systems needing service. Meanwhile, Symantec Endpoint Protection delivers near-perfect system protection, with no malware outbreaks in memory.
