Shavlik Upgrades NetChk Protect

Shavlik Technologies continues to close security and compliance gaps with latest release

ST. PAUL, Minn. -- Shavlik Technologies, the global leader in simplifying complex IT security and compliance challenges, today announced Shavlik NetChk® Protect 6.0, which further strengthens the industry’s number one solution for speed and accuracy in assessing and remediating gaps in an organization’s security and compliance state. NetChk Protect 6.0 will be generally available by the end of the month.

With Shavlik NetChk Protect 6.0 the industry’s best just got better – with Any Patch, Anywhere technology that allows organizations to easily and automatically patch virtually any Windows application on their network. Version 6.0 builds upon Shavlik’s unique approach to simplifying the assessment and remediation of security gaps in the network, with advanced management and configuration capabilities that further streamline security operations and management.

IT organizations today have mounting pressure to do more with less while at the same time reduce risk and maintain a constant state of awareness relative to system wide security and compliance status.

“Every month we must provide each business unit with a report on how IT operations is performing relative to published service level targets. One SLA requirement states that all systems must be 95 percent patched within five days of patch release,” stated the senior manager of IT security for an international financial services provider. “A few of our business units were consistently at 85 percent or below. With Shavlik NetChk Protect we were able to more accurately target the problem systems and close those gaps.”
