With the Symantec Ghost AntiVirus Migration ToolKit v6.5 an organisation can migrate their entire network and mobile PCs to Norton AntiVirus 7.5 Corporate Edition faster, cheaper and more efficiently. Not only are the deployment costs significantly reduced there is also no risk of the company being exposed without anti-virus protection during the roll-out.

The Symantec Ghost AntiVirus Migration ToolKit v6.5, uses Ghost AutoInstall, designed for customers who need to uninstall their existing competitive anti-virus software before migrating to Norton AntiVirus 7.5 Corporate Edition. The product was developed to ensure that the usual cost and inconvenience of manually removing software is minimal.
Ghost AutoInstall offers three key features: Replicator, to take ‘Snap shots’ of application installation and unistallation; Builder, to customise the package prior to roll out and Manager, the console to control and manage rollout Enterprise- wide.

The Ghost AutoInstall technology is the fastest Standard Operating Environment deployment tool available. It installs any software application including MSI packages, Operating System patches and Service packs.

“Norton AntiVirus 7.5 Corporate Edition, the latest launch in the AntiVirus series by Symantec, has received an excellent response and we have been approached by many corporations wanting to migrate from competitive anti-virus products to ours. With Ghost Migration v6.5, our customers will now be able to migrate more efficiently, with respect to both time and cost, to the more robust Norton AntiVirus 7.5,” say Richard Batchelar, Country Manager New Zealand.
Symantec Ghost AntiVirus Migration ToolKit 6.5, combined with legendary Ghost PC deployment and remote management technology, is the ideal tool for effective and powerful application migration.

It occupies less space on the PC and enables the user to upgrade software throughout the network with the help of a single tool.

Ghost ensures flexibility of moving from one platform to another. The product is Windows 2000 logo Certified. The Ghost Console provides full enterprise-wide rollout capability, enabling the administrator to effectively control application deployments.

As the Symantec Ghost AntiVirus Migration ToolKit v6.5 is available for organisations installing Norton AntiVirus 7.5 Corporate Edition, the product needs be ordered with one of the following Symantec AntiVirus products: Symantec AntiVirus Solution v7.5, Norton AntiVirus Corporate Edition 7.5 Desktop and Server, or Norton AntiVirus Corporate Edition 7.5 Desktop
