Shavlik today announced Shavlik Protect is now available in the Microsoft Azure Marketplace, enabling users to install the full version of Shavlik Protect in Microsoft’s cloud computing platform in less than one minute. This offering extends Shavlik’s powerful patch management capabilities to the cloud and includes agent and agent-less management options. It also includes support for OS and third-party patching for both physical and virtual server instances.
“We’re thrilled to be part of the Azure community,” said Rob Juncker, vice president, engineering at Shavlik. “We’ve always been able to handle the needs of our customers in securing on-premise servers, but this offering extends our capabilities into Azure, making it easier for our customers to manage the patches on their Azure servers.”
Shavlik Protect is easy-to-use security software that automates the discovery of missing patches and deploys them to PCs and servers across the network. It improves the security posture of devices throughout the organization, and better protects against security breaches through more proactive vulnerability management.
“With the use of Shavlik Protect on Azure, users can streamline patch management,” said Nicole Herskowitz, senior director of product marketing, Microsoft Azure. “This offering will save users valuable time and will give them peace of mind that they are keeping their servers up-to-date and protected and that their patches are deployed in a security-enhanced environment.”
