RE: Altiris Deployment Server vs. Microsoft SMS

I agree that the SMS and the SUS feature pack are a powerful combination.
However, we are looking to also have remote imaging capabilities for
Laptops, Desktops and Tablet PCs.

Ideally we would want all these features on a single secure console.

What kind of desktops?  All windows or a mix of Windows, Mac and Unix?
If all Windows clients, I think SMS with the SUS feature pack wins over
Altiris hands down.  If you are running a mix, SMS is still a
possibility, but you will need to purchase some add on tools from
Altiris to finis the task.

Between Microsoft SMS and Altiris Deployment Server, which product could
be
considered to be the better one for managing several hundred desktops
from a
security stand point?
