Based on the same remote control technology LANDesk has delivered to thousands of corporate and educational customers worldwide, LANDesk Classroom Manager brings both control and clarity to your student computing environment. With LANDesk, the teacher has complete control over student computers from an easy-to-use console that shows each student screen. Demonstrate lessons directly on student computer screens, supervise computer use, monitor online activity and lock keyboards, mice and screens during lessons to focus student attention and improve classroom time on task. LANDesk Classroom Manager keeps you in control, so you can teach more effectively.
Monitor - See what your students see. Our Teacher Console provides thumbnail or full screen views of each student screen. See what websites and applications are running on student computers. Monitor up to 250 computers per classroom. View a list of websites visited by students daily.
Control - Easily and quickly lock-down student computers (mouse, keyboard, and screen). Control exactly which programs and web sites your students can or can’t use. Immediately stop (or start) printing privileges. Turn all the machines in your lab on or off with just a couple of clicks. LANDesk Classroom Manager makes it easy to perform these actions on any or all the student computers in your lab. Industry-leading anti-tampering controls make our software extremely difficult to disable.
Teach - Broadcast your screen (or a particular student’s screen) to the entire class (or any subset thereof). Answer student questions via text messages, or initiate a chat session with a particular student. While broadcasting, draw on the screen to highlight or emphasize specific points. Take remote control of individual or multiple student systems. Quickly administer online multiple choice or true/false quizzes to assess comprehension (with real-time results shown in the Teacher Console).

LANDesk Handheld and Embedded Device Manager is optimized for the low-speed, intermittent connections typical of handheld devices. Dynamic bandwidth throttling adjusts automatically for slower wireless connections, so software distribution tasks don’t monopolize bandwidth. In addition, data compression reduces total traffic sent over wireless links, while checkpoint restart helps ensure that should a task be interrupted, it is completed at the next available opportunity.
LANDesk Host Intrusion Prevention System (HIPS) layers added security to thwart malicious attacks and rootkits. The solution uses application control that prevents applications from executing in malicious ways right on your individual host systems. Use LANDesk HIPS to extend the power of LANDesk Security Suite or LANDesk Patch Manager and LANDesk Antivirus or use it with Symantec antivirus or McAfee Enterprise. Access everything you need for the most complete, layered LANDesk Security solution available.
Take advantage of a single management console to install, configure and manage host-based intrusion prevention features for all enterprise systems. Quickly and easily perpetuate to host systems enterprisewide the learned behaviors blocked on an individual host.
Thwart malicious attacks with application blocking that prevents applications from executing in malicious ways right on your individual host systems. LANDesk Host Intrusion Prevention System enables your systems to recognize malicious writes and modifications to the registry to stop malware from running at reboot. And it allows IT to lock down the registry unless or until writes are approved by the IT administrator.
In addition to application blocking in LANDesk Security Suite, use LANDesk Host Intrusion Prevention System to make a whitelist of applications allowed to run on systems. Provide IT precise control over the applications that can run on enterprise systems and how those applications are allowed to execute. Prevent disguised, new and/or unknown malicious applications from slipping past your security defenses, and use flexible configurations to create and manage different whitelists for various users and groups.
LANDesk Antivirus detects known rootkits in real-time. Add LANDesk Host Intrusion Prevention System for even greater protection against stealth rootkits. Prevent stealth rootkits with control over whether or not applications can execute other applications on a host. And use kernel-level network filtering to define an application’s executable files and what is and isn’t acceptable network behavior. Also use LANDesk HIPS to certify whether or not certain applications or files can bypass some or all of its built-in protections. And prevent non-certified processes from injecting into certified processes and obtaining authorization attributes illegally.
