LANDesk Delivers Secure User Management Suite

Solution set is aimed at helping IT professionals gain control of a mixed environment of users, devices, and platforms

LONDON – Oct. 23, 2012 - LANDesk Software, a global leader in integrated systems, asset management, endpoint security, end-to-end mobility, virtualisation management and user-oriented IT service management, today announced LANDesk Secure User Management Suite. This industry-first solution set is aimed at helping IT professionals gain control of a mixed environment of users, devices and platforms, regardless of location, through a single console and low cost IT infrastructure.

In today's complex end-user computing environment, IT managers are facing a growing number of challenges. They must enable increasingly self-reliant users that are spending more time working remotely via a multitude of devices, while at the same time attempting to safeguard critical infrastructure and reducing costs. LANDesk Secure User Management Suite provides a flexible, adaptive IT delivery model that connects and extends the technologies IT managers need in order to gain control of these converging forces. While it is possible to gain this level of control via existing market technologies, several point products are needed to do so, which is costly and inefficient. With LANDesk, multiple functionalities come together in one console, providing a single point of data aggregation, organically integrated into a one suite solution. This helps to automate policies and synchronise information and eliminate time-consuming and error-prone IT tasks, while reducing complexity and operating costs.

In an industry first, LANDesk has made this solution available at one price, regardless of the type of user or how many devices or platforms they may have. The user-based pricing model offered by Secure User Management Suite was designed for the future of user-driven computing. With a recent survey reporting that the average enterprise user will have 3.47 devices by 2015 and 6.58 devices by 2020, the standard device-based pricing model will only continue to become more costly. With Secure User Management Suite, LANDesk customers pay one low price to manage a user and can scale up without additional costs.

"Value has always been a differentiator for LANDesk; we understand that many IT departments are cash-strapped and must accomplish sizeable goals while delivering industry-best TCO," said Steve Workman, vice president of product management, LANDesk Software. "And while we have always maintained a low TCO, with the new Secure User Management Suite, we are changing the game and once again leading the industry with our vision for the highest ROI and lowest TCO. We believe that a user-based pricing model will be much more effective and efficient for businesses of all types and sizes and will continue to lead the way in helping organisations make this shift."

LANDesk customers have long reported significant value and rapid returns on their investment in LANDesk solutions. An IDC survey of LANDesk customers recently found that those surveyed reported an average yearly cost savings of $32,022 per 100 users. In addition, the survey found that organisations typically recouped their LANDesk investment in less than five months, with an average ROI of 698% over three years. With Secure User Management Suite, LANDesk customers will continue to see these benefits and more. This solution provides the lowest infrastructure costs available on the market today. Reduced infrastructure costs coupled with user-based pricing provides customers with the lowest total cost of ownership possible.

LANDesk products included in Secure User Management Suite are Management Suite, Security Suite, Mobility Manager and Data Analytics.

Availability and Pricing

Secure User Management Suite will be available for purchase on Oct. 31, 2012. It can be purchased through simple upgrade paths on a per user basis. Customers should contact their LANDesk representative for a quote.
