Simple Patch Management For Enterprise Bulletin Updates

ScriptLogic : 14 July, 2010  (New Product)
Patch Authority Ultimate 7.5 uses patch engine from Shavlik Technologies and enables IT Administrators to apply patch updates with greater simplicity
ScriptLogic has announced the availability of Patch Authority Ultimate 7.5, a comprehensive, enterprise-class patch management solution. Through ScriptLogic's familiar "Point, Click, Done" interface, Patch Authority Ultimate allows IT administrators to centrally automate the updating of Windows desktops and servers, physical or virtual, regardless of the location. Patch Authority Ultimate makes use of Shavlik Technologies' best-of-breed patch engine to deliver enhanced security.

IT administrators are charged with updating software running on desktops and servers as quickly as possible to prevent a data breach or virus attack that targets known vulnerabilities. Patch Authority Ultimate reduces the complexity and improves the efficiency of software patch installation, with a streamlined user interface plus the addition of charts to show the security status of all machines on the network. To accommodate growth in virtual machines adoption, Patch Authority Ultimate enables scanning and patching of online or offline virtual machines as well.

"Patching machines and applications is a critical component of comprehensive desktop and server management and is vital to the overall security of an IT network," said Andy Langsam, president of ScriptLogic Corporation. "ScriptLogic's customers have benefitted from our long relationship with Shavlik as we continue to provide solutions for IT administrators that greatly improve efficiency while contributing to strategic objectives, such as security and compliance."

Patch Authority Ultimate 7.5 delivers greater productivity through improved performance, new smart filter capabilities and an updated user-friendly console that enables IT administrators to monitor background tasks and to scan and run multiple tasks simultaneously. Version 7.5 also blends agent-less and agent-based operations for a more comprehensive experience. Other new features include:

* Machine View: This updated feature, previously named Machine-Centric View, contains improved search, sort and filter capabilities and enables machines to be added with the click of a button.

* Patch View: A powerful and flexible tool, Patch View allows IT administrators to display detailed information about every product patch contained in a given XML patch data file.

* Comprehensive Visibility into Patch Group Information: A new Microsoft Outlook-style user interface provides more detailed information about each patch, such as bulletin ID, date, and title, Qnumber and patch type.

* Broader Operating System Support: The management console and agents are now fully supported on Windows Vista, Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2 operating systems. Patch Authority Ultimate also supports numerous third-party applications including Adobe Reader, Apple iTunes, Mozilla Firefox, QuickTime, RealPlayer, VMware and WinZip.

* Scan and Deploy Patches to Online or Offline Virtual Machines: Patch Authority Ultimate allows scanning and patching of online or offline virtual machines. Offline virtual machines are those that aren't powered on when a patch scan is performed.

"At Shavlik we strive to provide IT administrators with the most up-to-date, comprehensive set of patches through our engine in order to give companies the reassurance that all their machines, servers and applications are secure," said Mark Shavlik, CEO, Shavlik Technologies. "With a very significant customer base of IT professionals responsible for patch management, our technology partnership with ScriptLogic puts the Shavlik patch engine into the right hands."
