(businesspress24) - Award celebrates Shavlik’s pioneering patch solution and its strength in helping to protect virtual environments

LONDON — September 2, 2016 — Shavlik, a global leader in IT management and innovative security systems, today announced that Shavlik Protect has won the Gold Award in the “Security” category of the “Best of VMworld 2016” awards. These awards honour the most innovative new products in the server virtualisation, end-user computing and cloud markets.

“With all of the flash and hype in today’s security landscape, many organisations overlook the importance of patch management, which eliminates vulnerabilities, as well as the countless threats that target each vulnerability,” said Chris Goettl, senior product manager at Shavlik. “At Shavlik, we pride ourselves on delivering patch management that is easy to install and use. We have made a significant investment in improving patch management for data centre and virtual environments; this award validates our strategy and efforts.”

Shavlik helps organisations patch everything from VMware hypervisors to Microsoft Windows to the Mac OS, including the third-party applications running on each. Patching virtual environments is a great strength of Shavlik Protect, which includes capabilities such as:

Online and offline virtual machine patching
Virtual machine template patching
Snapshotting of critical assets for superior rollback
VMware vCenter integration
VMware ESXi Hypervisor patching

In addition, Protect offers an agentless option that is particularly well-suited to the datacentre. This option allows organisations to assess and deploy patches, while minimising impact to server workloads. This option also ensures that new virtual systems are never missed.

The Best of VMworld awards were chosen by a panel of independent expert judges, composed of editors of TechTarget’s SearchServerVirtualization.com, who evaluated 145 nominated products on display at VMworld 2016. Each product was evaluated for innovation, value, performance, reliability and ease of use. The security category acknowledges solutions that follow security best practices and monitor and protect cloud workloads, hypervisors, guest operating systems and virtual networks.
