Current security issues caused by an increasing number of threats, application vulnerabilities, and the growing complexity of many computing environments is making traditional approaches to system maintenance and support very difficult - or impossible - to manage. Even the best attempts to maintain up-to-date endpoint device environments - including operating system and application security patch rollouts - often fall short due to cost or logistics issues. Exacerbating the problem of endpoint management are the user demands for freedom to install their favorite productivity applications or use the latest handheld Personal Data Assistant (PDA). In addition to the potential for a business network malware pandemic, incompatibilities between personal applications and critical business client functionality can result in business continuity challenges.
