The article reports on the development of patch management solutions for UNIX operatings systems by Shavlik Technologies. The resulting solutions will provide the user with a common user experience and set of capabilities for UNIX and Linux, as is the case for the Shavlik integration for Microsoft patches. "We've invested much of our resources in providing patch management solutions for the Windows operating environment," said Mark Shavlik, president and CEO of Shavlik. "However, that's only part of the solution. Our customers have been asking us to add patching functionality to address the widespread growth of UNIX systems. The combination of Windows and multiple UNIX patching capabilities provides customers access to a comprehensive solution to better protect and secure IT infrastructures." The Shavlik UNIX solutions will help secure a wide-range of UNIX operating systems, including AIX, HP-UX, Red Hat Linux, and Solaris. Delivery is scheduled for the second quarter of mid-2005 for Red Hat and Solaris with additional platform support soon to follow. Shavlik helps information technology managers and administrators manage computer system security including assessment, security scanning and remediation of security vulnerabilities due to missing patches, weak accounts and passwords. Shavlik's security solutions include Shavlik HFNetChkPro, the industry standard for security patch management, Shavlik Security Agents , the company's agent-based patch management solution, Shavlik HFNetChkPro for Linux, the company's web-based interface for the Linux environment, Shavlik EnterpriseInspector, a powerful network inspection tool, and Shavlik AccountInspector, an interactive account and password security tool.
