JAMF Software, developers of the Casper Suite (http://www.jamfsoftware.com/products/casper-suite/), a collection of client management applications developed exclusively for Mac OS X, has announced closer integration with Intego VirusBarrier X6, extending the ability of enterprise IT Administrators to automate deployment of and receive reporting information about malware and network protection on client workstations.

Casper Suite 7.2 functions as a framework for IT ecosystems through which administrators can extend and automate enterprise products such as VirusBarrier X6 utilizing Extension Attributes, unifying administration of Mac OS X software within a single console. Extension attributes allow IT Administrators to receive integrated reporting within one console for the variety of products deployed throughout their organization. This integration eliminates the need for administrators to use multiple reporting tools and perform redundant tasks, by making most major reporting functions available through the JAMF Software Server (JSS) within the Casper Suite, according to Nick Amundsen, product specialist at JAMF Software, developers of the Casper Suite.

In addition to Intego VirusBarrier X6, the Casper Suite also incorporates Extension Attributes for products including ClamXav, Norton/Symantec AntiVirus, VirusScan, Virex, Sophos, CrashPlan, Time Machine, Atempo Live Backup, WinMagic, PGP, Checkpoint, Deep Freeze, Likewise, ADmit Mac and Centrify.
