The LANDesk Security Suite provides for identification and remediation of vulnerabilities across a wide variety of platforms. It supports third-party security products (such as antivirus software and system firewalls). LANDesk can also provide antivirus, host intrusion prevention system (HIPS), and data leakage prevention (DLP) features in the Security Suite. The product has weaknesses in workflow and the auditing of administrator actions, but the former can be alleviated with the addition of LANDesk Process Manager. In this Product Profile document, Senior Analyst Eric Maiwald examines the features and shortcomings of the LANDesk Security Suite.
