If your organization uses Microsoft’s System Center Configuration Manager to deploy software and updates for Microsoft operating systems and applications, Shavlik SCUPdates will have you deploying updates for 3rd party applications in just minutes.
But maybe you only use System Center Configuration Manager to deploy updates for workstations, desktops, and laptops; not your servers. Shavlik NetChk Protect is the right solution for patching your servers. NetChk Protect provides pinpoint control over when patches are deployed and servers are rebooted so you can hit your maintenance windows. Shavlik SCUPdates and Shavlik NetChk Protect form a powerful combination that delivers complete coverage for deploying updates for Microsoft and non-Microsoft applications.
SCUPdates is a catalog file that feeds update information for products from vendors like Adobe, Apple, and Sun JAVA into System Center Configuration Manager. SCUPdates is not an application. There are no agents to deploy. The Shavlik PatchPatrol™ does the research and package creation for non-Microsoft applications so your administrators don’t have to.
Skilled IT pros can create and publish patch metadata using System Center Updates Publisher, but it takes hours or days to do this for each vendor, each application, and each version. Shavlik lifts this time-consuming burden off the backs of administrators and puts it into the expert hands of the Shavlik PatchPatrol. You’ll get patch data for multiple vendors, multiple products, and multiple versions from a single, trusted source.
