GFI Software added vulnerability scanning and security patch management to GFI MAX RemoteManagement, an IT managed services software solution that makes it easy to stay on top of customers’ servers, desktops, networks, hardware and software with its monitoring and management, inventory tracking and automated server and desktop maintenance tools.
“We know security vulnerabilities remain amongst the most disruptive and damaging types of problem experienced in real-world networks, causing lost time and potentially security breaches to customers. This in turn can soak up large amounts of time remediating the problems and cleaning up the systems. The variety and number of threats continue to increase and it is impractical to manage them without effective tools to automate the process,” said Alistair Forbes, general manager, GFI MAX.
“To overcome this problem, GFI MAX RemoteManagement now includes the award-winning technology of GFI LANguard, to provide best-in-class vulnerability scanning and patch management capabilities via GFI MAX RemoteManagement. This provides an effective and efficient solution not only for Microsoft Windows and Office applications, but also non-Microsoft applications such as Adobe Reader, Adobe Flash Player, Adobe Acrobat, Adobe Shockwave, Mozilla Firefox, Mozilla Thunderbird, Java, Opera and Quicktime,” he added.
With vulnerability and patch management for servers and workstations managed easily through GFI MAX RemoteManagement’s dashboard, MSPs and IT support companies can deliver a high value service to reduce their customers’ risk of downtime and identify and rectify security holes in their networks by scheduling the installation of security patches.
The patch overview report provides a clear and complete summary of how GFI MAX RemoteManagement has helped to ensure these machines are up-to-date and secure.
