(PRWEB) October 23, 2012
Later this week, Microsoft’s newest Windows 8 operating system will be generally available. In support of this, Lumension®, a global leader in endpoint management and security, today announced that the company’s flagship product, Lumension® Endpoint Management and Security Suite (L.E.M.S.S.), will support both Windows 8 and Windows Server 2012, following an update to L.E.M.S.S. in December of this year.
Windows 8 is Microsoft’s newest operating system and is anticipated to be generally available on October 26. The system introduces many new features, including advanced security through built-in antivirus and secure booting to prevent malware from infecting the boot process.
“With Windows 8, Microsoft has made another push to ensure their operating systems are both secure and enterprise-friendly,” said Paul Zimski, vice president of solution marketing at Lumension. “We want to support those efforts by making sure that our customers are able to upgrade to the most secure operating system out there, while keeping existing security measures in place.”
L.E.M.S.S. allows enterprises to manage applications and endpoint solution workflows through a single console and ensures those applications and workflows are supported on each endpoint through a single agent architecture. The integration of modules Lumension® Patch and Remediation, Security Configuration Management, Power Management, Lumension® Application Control, Lumension® AntiVirus and Lumension® Device Control, provides multiple layers of protection without complicating endpoint system management.
L.E.M.S.S. v7.2 will support the following editions of the Windows 8 operating system and Windows Server 2012 when the update is released in December:
- Microsoft Windows 8 (x86 and x64)
- Microsoft Windows 8 Professional (x86 and x64)
- Microsoft Windows 8 Enterprise (x86 and x64)
- Microsoft Windows Server 2012 Standard
- Microsoft Windows Server 2012 Datacenter
- Microsoft Windows Server 2012 Foundation
- Microsoft Windows Server 2012 Essentials
