While I haven’t seen anything on the site yet, a PR release titled Novell Increases Investment in ZENworks Portfolio was linked to from the ZENworks Twitter account, so I’m considering it legitimate.
Basically, Novell has purchased the underlying source for their ZENworks Full Disc Encryption offering. Along with having the source they are increasing their investment in the development of that product, which also means the development of the ZENworks product line.
That all sounds like good stuff to me. We are looking at rolling out portions of ZENworks right now and ZENworks Full Disc Encryption is a part of those plans. Seeing Novell invest heavily only makes me more confident that we are making a good decision.

Full disk encryption makes Zenworks a very serious contender. That’s a great move by Novell. Glad to see them moving in the right direction
Yes it does. With the rumblings of bringing every ZENworks product into the same “console” as well, it is looking more and more interesting as time goes on. Their mobile offering has added some really neat features as well. Something we will also be looking into.
