As most of you have heard by now, Shavlik announced on Monday that we are being acquired by VMware. This announcement coincided with Microsoft’s TechEd conference in Atlanta and all week we’ve been inundated with questions about what this means for our SCUPdates™ product. The answer is yes: we will continue to sell and support SCUPdates.
SCUPdates delivers what Microsoft doesn’t: a way to leverage a single SCCM workflow for deploying updates for both Microsoft and, perhaps more importantly, non-Microsoft applications. SCUPdates allows you to leave researching and creating patch data to Shavlik – we’ve been doing it for years. With SCUPdates you can fully maximize your investment in SCCM and make your network more secure.
And, it’s not just SCUPdates. Across our entire product portfolio, we are fully committed to providing every customer with continuity and investment protection including smooth upgrade paths to greater functionality and access to high quality services for both packaged software and SaaS delivered software.
