Shavlik Technologies Offers New Approach To Managing Endpoint Security

Company integrates an antivirus engine with Shavlik NetChk Protect 7 patch management solution
ST. PAUL, Minn. --(Business Wire)-- Apr 21, 2009 Shavlik Technologies, LLC, the market leader in simplifying and automating critical IT operations, today announced that the company has integrated next generation antivirus + antispyware with its industry leading patch management solution to help its customers consolidate critical-to-perform tasks under fewer IT resources. The upcoming release of its flagship product, Shavlik NetChk Protect 7, has integrated an antivirus engine that has been designed from the ground up to provide comprehensive protection against today's modern threats but is light on system resources so organizations no longer have to trade productivity for security. And Shavlik will deliver this new technology in a single agent, managed from the same console its customers use today for patch management.

"The integration of antivirus into our security suite is not just about consolidation of tasks " it's also about a new approach to fighting the explosive growth and increasing complexity of malware," said Mark Shavlik, CEO of Shavlik Technologies. "Our customers have told us their laptops, remote and often disconnected, remain unprotected due to the bandwidth requirements of their current antivirus solution. They simply can't sacrifice business productivity in order to update those systems as often as they should. Shavlik NetChk Protect 7 gives them a way to protect and manage those endpoints with an antivirus solution that is fast, transparent, and uses detection technology designed to stop today's viruses, worms, and rootkits."

With NetChk Protect 7, the Shavlik Security Suite now provides a comprehensive solution with defense in depth to fend off today's threats. The Suite helps organizations remain proactive, ensuring systems are fully patched and properly configured, while allowing them to be reactive with an antivirus and active protection solution required for the polymorphic threats organizations are faced with today. Shavlik reduces agent bloat by consolidating these tasks on one agent. With newly architected antivirus + antispyware technology, Shavlik makes it fast, makes it light on system resources, and makes it stop malware.
