Network security firm Shavlik Technologies today expanded its Security Suite to include anti-malware capabilities alongside its own patch management and configuration management products.
NetChk Protect 7 features a fully integrated anti-virus engine from specialist Sunbelt Software to offer customers a product with very low CPU and memory usage, according to the firm's vice president of worldwide sales, Chris Schwartzbauer.
"The competition is very agent-centric, putting a lot of code down at the end point, making it very resource intensive," he added.
"We try to put as little or no code on the machine… and we're now adding to the suite enhanced anti-malware capabilities – everything from rootkit discovery and remediation to the latest and greatest anti-virus capabilities."
By adding the Sunbelt technology, Shavlik is aiming to provide customers with a comprehensive suite of tools to accurately scan and remediate all of their machines, including those agentless virtual and portable machines, in a non-resource intensive manner, he explained.
