[I wonder if the USAF will be stuck activating and reactivating their 
security software over and over again [1], and often at the most 
inopportune times...   - WK]

The Air Force has selected Symantec's LiveState Client Management 
Suite and the company's professional services consulting to support 
its Air Force Standard Desktop Configuration.

The Air Force's effort is a global client device and software 
management program. Through the five-year contract with Symantec, the 
service is working to create, deploy and manage applications and 
settings centrally for hundreds of thousands of users worldwide.

"The military's demand for secure and survivable [information 
technology] assets compliant with policies requires a continuous and 
integrated approach to asset management spanning security, compliance, 
administration, and recovery," said David Saunders, vice president of 
Symantec's public-sector business, in a statement. 

LiveState provides life cycle management of devices from the time they 
are acquired until they are discarded. 

The Air Force agreement came through the Defense Department's 
Enterprise Software Initiative.
