October 18, 2016: LANDESK today announced its 2016.3 product releases, bringing new visibility and discovery capabilities to the LANDESK solutions portfolio. With the latest updates, LANDESK gives organizations an improved view of what’s in their environment and the ability to take action within the same system. There is a growing need for IT to better understand what’s happening in the environment and have the tools to take action when needed. Without this level of visibility, organizations face higher risks of failed audits, security threats, inconsistent policies and support for devices, and lackluster IT and business services. http://www.landesk.com/company/press-releases/2016/landesk-quarterly-product-update-increases-visibility-in-enterprises/?langtype=1033&clangtype=1033
October 17, 2016: Building on a multi-layered approach to defend against ransomware, LANDESK today announced new capabilities to its LANDESK® Security Suite. With a growing number of ransomware threats menacing enterprises, the latest additions aid in closing security gaps across the entire organization—a strategy that’s recognized as the best way to battle ransomware. Ransomware is an imminent threat to organizations and shows no signs of slowing down. According to FBI estimates, criminals have already collected $209 million in revenue in the first quarter of 2016, and that number could exceed $1 billion by year-end. And while the average ransom is still relatively small—between $200 and $5000—the price is going up.http://www.landesk.com/company/press-releases/2016/landesk-expands-ransomware-protection/?langtype=1033&clangtype=1033
