Tom Piotrowski, managing director of Unixpac, (pictured), the Australian distributors for Shavlik said security vulnerabilities are uncovered on a daily basis, and managing the security patches and configuration files that address them can be an endless and complicated task.
"Without the right automated solutions, patch management can be a tedious and herculean task, requiring companies to regularly devote hundreds or even thousands of man-hours," he said.
Shavlik NetChk Protect identifies and fixes gaps in 'must do' tasks such as patch management, application control, and antivirus and antispyware.
While Shavlik NetChk Configure manages critical system and security configuration, controls enabling organisations to lower operational costs, improves system uptime and reduces time required for audit preparation.
Configure recently won 'Tomorrows Technology Today Award 2009'.
The award recognises security vendors with advanced, ground breaking technologies and solutions that are helping set the bar higher for others in all areas of information security.
"This is a really big achievement. We already have enquires and questions from our channel partners in regards to that." said Gosia Luszpinska, channel marketing manager at Unixpac.
"We also look forward to introducing Shavlik at AusCERT this year. We are sure that it will be an interesting experience for many security professionals." she added.
Shavlik Security Suite helps organisations remain proactive, ensuring systems are fully patched and properly configured, while allowing them to be reactive with an antivirus solution.
