1.0 Introduction

The Novell® ZENworks® Endpoint Security Client 4.0 is a client release to support Microsoft Windows Vista with Support Pack 1 running in 32-bit mode. The Endpoint Security Client 4.0 uses the ZENworks Endpoint Security Management 3.5 Server and Management Console.

Novell ZENworks Endpoint Security Management (ESM) is designed to protect corporate data assets, through a centrally managed tool called the ZENworks Security Client. The ZENworks Endpoint Security Client 4.0 is installed on Windows Vista 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.
