Editions of the Program

Shavlik Protect is available within two different product bundles.

There are several different editions of Shavlik Protect. Each edition provides a different level of capabilities. To determine which edition you are running, select Help > About to view program details.

This section provides a synopsis of each available edition.

Shavlik Protect, Full Edition

This is the full edition of the program. With Shavlik Protect you can scan for missing patches, deploy missing patches, and view the results of these actions. You also have access to all the other features provided by your program license (Shavlik Protect Standard or Shavlik Protect Advanced).

Shavlik Protect, Audit Edition

The Audit edition allows you to perform agentless scans for missing patches and to evaluate the status of your machines. It does not allow you to deploy patches to your machines, nor does it provide access to the power and asset functions or the agent-based threat management capabilities of Shavlik Protect Agent.

Shavlik Protect, Trial Edition

Shavlik Protect is available on a trial basis. This enables you to test all the capabilities of Shavlik Protect, but only for 60 days. You are also limited to 50 license seats. When the trial license expires the program will stop refreshing its XML data files and many of the program features will no longer be available.

Shavlik Protect, Government Edition

When you purchase the Government Edition of Shavlik Protect you will receive a license key that enables you to use the Information Assurance Vulnerability Alert (IAVA) Reporter. The IAVA-specific files are automatically installed when Shavlik Protect Standard or Shavlik Protect Advanced is installed. For more information about IAVA, see IAVA Overview.
