SALT LAKE CITY, June 21, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- LANDesk Software, a global leader in systems lifecycle management, endpoint security and IT service management, today announced that Info Security Products Guide has named LANDesk a winner in two categories for the Best Deployment Scenario Awards. The deployment of LANDesk Security Suite at Radiant Systems won in the Endpoint Security Solution category, and the deployment of both Security Suite and LANDesk Cloud Services Appliance at Gwinnett Hospital System won in the Enterprise Management category. This marks the second year in a row LANDesk has been recognized in two categories.
This award recognizes security vendors with advanced, ground-breaking security solutions that help set the bar higher for others in all areas of information security. LANDesk solutions were selected based on real-world deployments that are making a positive impact on security in today's highly sophisticated and blended attacks environment.
"With the recent proliferation of breaches we have seen across a range of industries, employing effective endpoint security measures is more critical than ever," said Mike Hall, senior vice president of sales and marketing at LANDesk Software. "This recognition is particularly meaningful because it validates LANDesk solutions not only on their own merits, but also on the effectiveness in the field. It's the actual deployment that matters when endpoints are at stake."
LANDesk® Security Suite was selected as the winner in the Endpoint Security Solution category because of its small footprint, configurability and flexibility, all of which Radiant Systems, a major point-of-sale provider, found extremely valuable in enabling its customers to achieve PCI compliance. LANDesk Security Suite also provides a multi-layered approach that offers more integration and threat protection for Windows, Mac and mobile operating systems than other solutions – an increasingly valuable asset for deployment in today's increasingly heterogeneous enterprise.
LANDesk® Cloud Services Appliance was chosen as the winner in the Enterprise Management category for enabling Gwinnett Hospital System, a large not-for-profit hospital network, to secure field-based or traveling laptops across the Internet—without a dedicated leased line or VPN and without punching a hole in the firewall. LANDesk Security Suite also helped the organization cost effectively distribute patches to its extensive network, a major requirement for a not-for-profit hospital with limited budget.
"The most powerful message security vendors can give to prove their capabilities and continued commitment in solving customer's security needs is through successful deployments," says Rake Narang, editor-in-chief, Info Security Products Guide. "LANDesk's successful deployment at two companies enabled both to effectively secure their endpoints, one across a wide range of customers and the other, a very mobile corporate network. These capabilities are what made LANDesk stand apart from the competition."
