Shavlik Joins Microsoft System Center Alliance Program

Agreement marks new phase as Shavlik solidifies company's vision to support System Center 2012 R2 Configuration Manager

UK December 9, 2013 - Shavlik, a business unit of LANDesk Software, and a recognized leader in agentless patch management capabilities, announced today that it has joined the Microsoft System Center Alliance Program. As the first company to provide third-party patches to Microsoft System Center 2012 R2 Configuration Manager customers, Shavlik has continued to refine its popular SCUPdates product and add supplementary products to enhance the features of Microsoft System Center Configuration Manager. By joining the System Center Alliance, Shavlik is reaffirming its commitment to its customers.

"Shavlik is thrilled to be part of the Microsoft System Center Alliance Program," said Marshall Smith, Vice President of Partnering and Operations for Shavlik. "We have patched Microsoft and third-party applications since the beginnings of Shavlik and we plan to continue empowering our customers with our popular SCUPdates, Management Intelligence, and additional Shavlik products that add value to System Center customers. Our membership in the Alliance will help us continue to foster the communication required to shape and refine our products and to meet the needs of our mutual customers."

Building on Shavlik's recognised expertise in patch detection and deployment, SCUPdates has the ability to extend the reach of System Center Configuration Manager beyond current Microsoft products to patch today's most attacked applications. SCUPdates takes advantage of the System Center Configuration Manager workflow and does not require the installation of an application or agent for deployment. By syncing with Shavlik SCUPdates, System Center Configuration Manager customers have a single System Center Configuration Manager workflow for deploying updates for Microsoft operating systems, Microsoft applications, and non-Microsoft applications.

"System Center 2012 R2, with its trailblazing functionality, provides a solid foundation for third parties such as Shavlik to build on and add value for customers," said Brian Hillger, Director, Product Marketing, Microsoft Corp. "With SCUPdates, Shavlik is helping customers keep third-party applications patched and secure with consistent accuracy and ease-of-use. Microsoft is pleased to welcome Shavlik into the System Center Alliance."

In addition to SCUPdates, Shavlik has products to patch the datacenter, track and manage software licenses, and manage mobile devices that are designed to enhance the end-user experience and expand System Center Configuration Manager beyond its current feature set.

A free trial version of SCUPdates and other Shavlik products is available for evaluation on the Shavlik website and through select resellers.

The precious oil is extracted from the seeds of prickly pear cactus plant. After taking out the seeds from the fruits, they are adequately dried and then cold pressed to obtain the oil. Indeed, the prickly seed oil is quite expensive. Well, that is understandable when you consider the fact that the seeds are really tiny and each seed contain only about 5% of oil in it at most, plus the seeds are usually handpicked from the fruits. This means it will take tons of these seeds to produce just one bottle of the oil for commercial purpose. But from its medical properties to its culinary importance, skin lightening, moisturizing, and protection abilities, down to its extraordinary hair care properties, prickly seed oil has got lots of excellent rewards for anyone who pays the price.
