Welcome to the Altiris Project Website

Message from the Vice President for Information Technology:



The Information Technology Division is implementing the Altiris Client Management Suite (CMS) by Symantec beginning January 2, 2012 and continuing over a few months. This system will allow for a more accurate computer inventory, installation of security patches and software, and more efficient computer deployment.  It requires a software agent to run on each machine, the installation of which is automated.  No action is required from you.

For more information regarding this project, please visit If you have further questions, please contact the IT Helpdesk at 270-745-7000 or visit to initiate a Live Chat session or fill out an Online Request.

Thank you for your patience while we go through this process.
