DLT Solutions Selects ScriptLogic's Desktop Authority To Help Agencies Enforce Federal Desktop Core Configuration Compliance
Boca Raton, Fla. – September 24, 2008 – ScriptLogic® Corporation (www.scriptlogic.com), a leading provider of systems lifecycle management solutions for Microsoft® Windows®-based networks, today announced that DLT Solutions, a value-added reseller of industry-leading information technology products and services to government and business customers, is now reselling ScriptLogic products to help government organizations enforce Federal Desktop Core Configuration (FDCC) compliance. DLT's relationship with ScriptLogic addresses a growing demand among agencies for Desktop Authority, ScriptLogic's flagship desktop platform.
“ScriptLogic's Desktop Authority is an essential tool for government agencies striving to meet FDCC regulations and overcome a host of compliance challenges,” said Rick Marcotte, president and CEO at DLT Solutions. “Now, our partnership with ScriptLogic will ensure federal, state and municipal government agencies have access to ScriptLogic's unrivaled exception management capabilities through the procurement vehicle of their choice.”
Earlier this month Desktop Authority became a certified FDCC-compliant application, operating on compliant networks without requiring exceptions to the FDCC standards.
Using the Desktop Authority FDCC Policy importer, federal agencies can import the NIST-provided group policies into a Desktop Authority profile. Then, using the patented Validation Logic, administrators can open exceptions only for those users or computers that require the non-compliant applications. This dynamic exception management allows agencies to use a single set of policies in their network, without disrupting critical processes.
“For agencies struggling with FDCC compliance, ScriptLogic's Desktop Authority offers the most comprehensive solution for addressing FDCC standards, allowing government IT professionals to simply import group policy objects from the NIST distribution into their Desktop Authority profile using our new FDCC policy import utility,” said Ben Battle, vice president of Product Development for ScriptLogic. “By offering dynamic exception management through Desktop Authority Validation Logic, ScriptLogic provides agencies with a ‘Point, Click, Done' approach to FDCC regulations.”
About FDCC Regulations
The FDCC standards represent a set of policies designed to provide a secure operating environment for desktop and notebook computers running in federal agencies. The standards insist on user, network and browser security policies. All agencies were directed by OMB to implement FDCC and report on their status by February 1, 2008.
