GFI MAX RemoteManagement now comes with vulnerability scanning and security patch management. Managed Service Providers (MSPs) and IT support companies can now deliver cost-effective patch management to boost profits and reduce security risks for their clients.

“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 intuitive 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.

Patch management in GFI MAX RemoteManagement is priced competitively in relation to standalone products and customers pay only for the devices with patch management enabled. Moreover, for customers already making extensive use of the existing product features, there’s no extra charge to use patch management on servers as it is included in the low capped monthly server price.
