Shavlik Security Suite incorporates a broad scope of protection management including automated discovery, scanning, and patching of servers and desktops; virus and spyware detection; application execution blocking; automated assessment of security controls configuration (of servers and desktops) against regulations and best practices frameworks; and role-based reporting, trending, and alerting, with a particular focus on regulatory compliance. Patch and security configuration management require a greater level of automation than freely available tools provide, particularly given the increasing volume of patches and regulatory demands. Shavlik Security Suite can patch online and offline virtual machines; works both with an agent-based or agentless approach; supports legacy Windows platforms and a wide range of Microsoft and third-party applications; and furthermore provides strong control of scanning options, and a level of automated remediation that is impressive. Although we note that support for patch management of mobile devices is one enterprise requirement that it does not yet cater for, this is in other respects a very strong solution from a vendor with excellent credentials.
