Comprehensive patch management and deployment

Reduce infrastructure and resource costs by using a single solution to manage patches for heterogeneous environments.  Achieve peace of mind by making sure Windows and Mac platforms as well as potentially vulnerable third-party applications (like Adobe Reader® or Oracle Java®) are patched and up to date. Get powerful administrative capabilities, including customizable and automated patch scheduling based on dynamic filtering and detailed tracking and reporting on status of patches.

Employ remote replication for multiple worksites

Significantly reduce the network impact of large patch deployments with the K1000’s remote-replication capabilities – even if your organization has multiple locations. You simply designate a system in a remote location as the replication share. The K1000 data is sent once over your network to the replication share, and all other systems at that remote office then directly pull patches from the designated remote replication share through the LAN instead of from the K1000 — without the need for dedicated hardware or personnel at the remote facility.

Robust, standards-based vulnerability scanning (OVAL* and SCAP)

Quickly discover vulnerabilities in your environment and identify systems that aren’t compliant with your security and configuration policies with powerful security audits.  Employ OVAL-based vulnerability scanning for all managed Windows systems. Manage common endpoint configurations and confirm organizational compliance with easy-to-use, automated SCAP (Security Content Automation Protocol) scheduling and detailed reporting.

Simplified system configuration management and security policy enforcement

Streamline configuration and security policy enforcement processes, such as firewall, browser and registry settings, for Windows, Mac and Linux systems by automatically deploying scripts based on specific conditions, or manually running a script based on need. Easily create scripts that target individual systems, a specific group of systems or an entire network – or use a variety of pre-built scripts. Gain the ability to set and enforce desktop configurations, and manage McAfee and Symantec antivirus packages.
