Italy and Russia as well as China and Japan. This expanded accessibility enables
IT administrators across the globe to implement successful patch management
strategies that include on-premise and off-premise software updates and online
and offline virtual machine patching.
addition to agentless patching capabilities for the data center, Protect offers
cloud-based agents that can manage agent machines that are outside the

an agent machine has internet access. Shavlik’s technology can enable a cloud
agent in minutes, allowing administrators to deploy and manage agents outside
the network while supporting them as if they are on premise.

with IPv6 support and extended reporting capability. The enhanced resolution features of Protect
enable administrators to discover a machine by FQDN, hostname, IPv4, or IPv6
with great efficiency. Shavlik also extends reporting by providing views for
creating custom reports and integrating with third-party reporting solutions. Customers will also see improvements to
deployment tracking with broader machine summaries and more in-depth patch
details to make deployment of hundreds of patches manageable by exception.
