SALT LAKE CITY, April 24, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- LANDesk Software, a global leader in integrated systems lifecycle management, endpoint security and IT service management, today announced that LANDesk Management Suite was positioned as a "Leader" in Gartner's 2013 Magic Quadrant for "Client Management Tools"(1).
The Client Management Tools report, evolving from the "PC Configuration Life Cycle Management" report is a critical tool in guiding IT's understanding of the market space and accommodating the emergence of mobile device and Mac management needs. LANDesk® Management Suite provides IT with a user-centric platform that automates, manages, protects and controls all hardware and software, regardless of location, from a single console.
As part of the LANDesk Client Management Suite, LANDesk Mobility Manager supports popular mobile device platforms, including the latest iOS and Android operating systems and also allows custom device policy options, enabling IT to centrally define and distribute a policy over a variety of platforms. Through the inclusion of Wavelink, a business unit of LANDesk and leader in the mobile and ruggedized device space, the LANDesk Mobility Manager platform has been expanded to include solutions for the warehouse and back-office, as well as the boardroom, all through a single management console and database.
"Our goal is to always provide solutions that anticipate the needs of IT before they need them. Therefore it is particularly satisfying to be recognized as a leader in the most recent version of the Client Management Magic Quadrant," said Steve Workman, LANDesk's vice president of product management. "With the continuing expansion of the mobile workforce over the last year and proliferation of different operating systems into the enterprise, it is difficult for IT to keep up. Gartner's report analyzed our client, mobility and Mac management capabilities, which affirms to us that we're doing the right things to help our customers manage and keep their organizations secure, regardless of device or location."
