IAVA Overview

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 is installed.


The IAVA Reporter provides a cross reference of the existing XML patch file supplied by Shavlik and the IAVA XML file compiled by the U.S. Government. There is typically a two week gap between the time a new patch is released (by Microsoft or other vendors) and the time the patch is included in the IAVA XML file.

There are two different ways to get the latest version of the IAVA XML file:

C:\Program Data\LANDesk\Shavlik Protect\Console\DataFiles
