Intel Sells LANDesk
Intel's decision to Spin Off its LANDesk desktop-management suite and the product's related software properties into a separate company isn't necessarily bad for customers, even though the Intel brand denoted stability. But Microsoft is certain to make it difficult for the new LANDesk company to thrive.
Over the past year, Intel added some useful features to LANDesk, including the zero-footprint inventory scanner and inventory service.
Meet the New LANDesk Acquisition Corp.
Expected number of employees: 150
Number of products: 5
CEO: Joe Wang (recently VP of Symantec's Enterprise Administration Division)
Headquarters: Salt Lake City
So the new company (called LANDesk Acquisition Corp., formed by Intel, Vector Capital and vSpring Capital) isn't just getting five-year-old technology and a customer base.
