1.0 Introduction

Novell® ZENworks® Endpoint Security Management (ESM) is designed to protect corporate data assets, through a centrally managed tool called the Endpoint Security Client. The Endpoint Security Client 3.5 is installed on Windows XP and Windows 2000 enterprise computers and enforces security policies written and sent down through the ESM management and distribution system. This allows large enterprises and small businesses to create, deploy, enforce, and monitor computer security policies on computers inside and outside of the corporate security perimeter.

For Windows Vista computers, see ZENworks Endpoint Security Client 4.0 User Guide.
