Smart Patch Management Matches Computer Power Regimes

Shavlik Technologies : 05 May, 2010  (New Product)
With NetChk Protect 7.5 from Shavlik, organisations can respect their energy saving power-off routines for computer hardware while still gaining critical patch management for securing IT assets against the latest threats
Shavlik Technologies has announced the release of Shavlik NetChk Protect 7.5 which maximises energy cost savings while minimising systems missing critical security updates because they were powered off during scheduled maintenance periods.

With enormous energy cost savings at stake, interest in computer power management has been steadily increasing. Switching off PCs that are not in use at night and on weekends can save up to $60 per machine per year. But great care must be taken to ensure sleeping computers receive critical security updates (patches) and antivirus definitions. By integrating power management with industry leading patch management and antivirus protection, Shavlik NetChk Protect 7.5 strikes a balance between the desire for Greener IT and the need to maintain the health of computers. The solution seamlessly integrates scheduled changes to power state (shutdown, sleep, hibernate) and Wake on LAN to power machines on for regular maintenance. Shavlik has also released a Power Savings Calculator, available for free on IT.Shavlik.com, to help administrators calculate their CO2 and energy cost savings.

"We have learned from utility companies and our customers that the need to automate the deployment of security patches has forced some energy savings ambitions off the agenda. By integrating these tasks with patch management in a centralised, easy-to-use console, we can make those Green IT initiatives viable, "says Mark Shavlik, CEO Shavlik Technologies. "We are developing Shavlik NetChk Protect to simplify IT management tasks by making it possible to tackle more of them together. By centralising management, we move tasks from the 'can't do' list to the 'job done' list."

NetChk Protect Patch Plus Power Management is the latest "Patch Plus" release from Shavlik Technologies designed to simplify and automate the systems management challenges most relevant to current IT environments, while lowering cost and complexity. All of Shavlik's Patch Plus solutions for the NetChk Protect platform are the result of direct feedback from customers who want to make use of Shavlik's easy to use and manage NetChk Console to address their top priorities. By bundling additional capabilities along with Shavlik's industry leading agentless asset discovery and trusted patch management capabilities in a single console, Shavlik customers increase their operational efficiency without increasing their management overhead or costs.
