Shavlik Technologies is offering a free download of its network solution to detect security misconfigurations and missing critical updates in older installed Microsoft products. The solution is for networks running legacy Microsoft software that is not supported by Microsoft Update, according to an announcement issued by Shavlik.
Shavlik's NetChk Protect Limited searches for critical security patches and spyware. However, the free version does not install patches or remove spyware, according to the product's Quick Start Guide posted on Shavlik's Web site.
Shavlik offers an upgrade to the free program that has additional tools, such as "automated remediation, intelligent patch targeting, and granular policy and compliance reporting," the announcement stated.
