Aug 30, 2013 (MarketLine via COMTEX) --
Arrow Electronics Inc., a provider of products, services and solutions to industrial and commercial users of electronic components and enterprise computing solutions, has signed an agreement with Shavlik Technologies, LLC, which is engaged in IT management, to distribute Shavlik's Protect and SCUPDates patch-management solutions in the US and Canada.
"Given the emerging prevalence of applications and plugins in the enterprise data center, Arrow is pleased to bring Shavlik's patch-management technology to our solution provider community," said Mike Nowlan, vice president of Arrow's enterprise computing solutions business.
"Arrow has a long-standing commitment to, and leadership position in, the IT security market. The addition of Shavlik to our portfolio reinforces that commitment and industry leadership."
LANDesk Software recently acquired the Shavlik product portfolio from VMware. Shavlik Protect is a patch management product for client and server devices that offers IT administrators agent or agentless flexibility. Shavlik SCUPDates, an add-on offering to Microsoft System Center Configuration Manager, seamlessly expands patching capabilities to include third-party applications. The solutions are suitable for organizations of all sizes and in any industry, Arrow said.
"Our agreement with Arrow is essential in our effort to enable reseller organizations to build a profitable business around patch management and provide customers with effective solutions to their patch-related security needs," said Marshall Smith, vice president of partnering and sales operations for Shavlik.
"Shavlik's 'add water and stir' approach to IT solutions means that customers can get up and running and see ROI (return on investment) more quickly than with other solutions."
