Version 1

    LANDesk Security and Patch News



    • (May 24, 2011) LANDesk is updating support for the Secure Content Automation Protocol (SCAP) content. The initial content released by LANDesk was the Federal Desktop Core Configuration (FDCC) content. This content provided support for the FDCC benchmarks for Windows XP and Windows Vista. LANDesk is now broadening support for other SCAP content and will be releasing the United States Government Configuration Baseline for Windows 7. LANDesk is also working on providing content for the Microsoft Windows security baseline for Windows 2008. Other benchmarks will include the Center for Internet Security (CIS) benchmarks for Windows 7 and Windows 2008. Bulletins for these releases will be posted in this forum to notify customers of the content availability.


    • Note: Customers must have a LANDesk FDCC license to access this content. 


    Here is the new grouping structure for the LANDesk SCAP content:
