LANDesk cannot replace the SAV console. LANDesk only provides this functionality for LANDesk Antivirus.
Thanks for the quick response. I had thought the same just needed clarification.
LANDesk can monitor other vendor's definitions, provide definition updates and do limited reporting on the status of computers.
Basically the AV-1XX definitions in Patch Manager are content for LANDesk and other Antivirus vendors, including Symantec.
Patch Manager can be used to enforce that definitions are downloaded regularly, etc.
However, reporting and other functions are not available per se.
I will write an article soon that spells out exactly what we can and cannot do in managing third party antivirus products.
However, with LANDesk Antivirus there is a full Antivirus Activity view, etc.
