Shavlik Technologies has the de-facto standard technology in the marketplace with many companies smoothly integrating Shavlik’s standard technology into their own. Companies such as Microsoft, NetIQ, Symantec, and BMC Software to name just a few.
Microsoft MBSA was developed for Microsoft by Shavlik. This is a tool which provides a method of identifying common security configuration errors. It contains graphical and command line interfaces that enable the user to scan local and remote Window’s systems. This runs on Windows 2000, Windows XP and Windows Server 2003 server-based systems.
Shavlik also collaborated with Microsoft to build additional technology. Examples include Network Access Protection (NAP), Microsoft Personal Security Advisor (MPSA) and HFNetChk, the patch management solution used by millions of security administrators worldwide.
Steve Francis, Database Assistant Administrator for E.On says, “Patch management can be an extremely time-consuming task and we needed to ensure that our servers were protected. In addition to Microsoft® SUS, the automated patch management solution from Shavlik double checks that patches are pushed out and applied successfully.”
