Symantec today announced plans to create a Web-based console to centrally administer Macintosh clients licensed for Norton AntiVirus 9.0. Symantec says the administration console is designed to offer centralized antivirus management for Mac OS X clients, ensuring up-to-date protection across multiple platform network environments. Some of the features of the new console include LiveUpdate virus definition and product updates on demand or scheduled, lock-down settings for the client to prevent users from changing preferences, production of standard and customized reports accessible via the Web interface, and more. The Symantec administrative console for Macintosh is scheduled for rollout in November 2004.
