Altiris is working closely with Microsoft to help automate management of the recently announced Microsoft Windows Embedded for Point of Service software.

Altiris IT lifecycle management solutions will help reduce the cost and time needed to deploy, service and support secure and reliable retail point of service (POS) systems. Altiris solutions will help retailers reduce the cost and complexity of setting up and using reliable point of service systems by automating and simplifying tedious management tasks like OS deployment, patch management and asset management. Leveraging management automation of POS systems enables more rapid development and integration of reliable systems, applications and device peripherals such as scanners, receipt printers, cash drawers and magnetic stripe readers. Windows Embedded for Point of Service, based on technologies available in Windows XP Embedded with Service Pack 2, is optimized for retailers to enhance the customer experience at the point of service, increase reliability and security, and deliver low life-cycle costs for point-of-service systems. Windows Embedded for Point of Service is expected to be available in the first half of 2005. Altiris is a Microsoft Global Gold ISV and Advanced Infrastructure partner. Altiris software has been used by companies worldwide to help deploy millions of nodes of Windows XP and Windows 2000. Altiris also develops solutions for Windows Server 2003 management as a leader in server provisioning while jointly promoting Microsoft Software Asset Management. Altiris is also working to integrate with the Microsoft Network Access Protection technology to promote network security and resiliency against viruses and mal-ware.
