Air Force to use Symantec product suite, consulting services

The Air Force has selected Symantec’s LiveState Client Management Suite and the company's professional services consulting to support its Air Force Standard Desktop Configuration.

The Air Force's effort is a global client device and software management program. Through the five-year contract with Symantec, the service is working to create, deploy and manage applications and settings centrally for hundreds of thousands of users worldwide.

“The military’s demand for secure and survivable [information technology] assets compliant with policies requires a continuous and integrated approach to asset management spanning security, compliance, administration, and recovery,” said David Saunders, vice president of Symantec's public-sector business, in a statement.

LiveState provides life cycle management of devices from the time they are acquired until they are discarded.

The Air Force agreement came through the Defense Department's Enterprise Software Initiative.
