    Headlines

    • (May 14, 2010) LANDesk has added three new security threat (ST) vulnerabilities to content. These three vulnerabilities are a beta release. The security threats will scan computers and report back whether encryption applications are installed on the computer and if any of the drives have been encrypted. These vulnerabilities provide detection and reporting only. The two encryption applications that are currently supported are CheckPoint Full Disk Encryption and Microsoft’s BitLocker. We welcome feedback and suggestions for this content as well as other products that should be added to our support. ST000080_Beta must be run first before ST000081_Beta or ST000082_Beta can be run. This ST content is currently supported on Windows only.
