Shavlik Technologies NetChk Protect 5.5
Shavlik Technologies NetChk Protect 5.5 Review
April 2006

Shavlik Technologies' NetChk Protect 5.5 is a unique combination of security tools. It integrates HFNetChk-Pro, the company's flagship patch management product, with its NetChk Spyware antispyware module in a single management console. The result is a smooth path for existing customers who want to add antispyware capabilities, and new customers who can fill two needs in one purchase. But there are some catches.

NetChk Protect works only with Windows machines (it supports Windows XP, 2000 and 2003 Server), which is fine for many shops, but a big red flag to larger, heterogeneous enterprises, particularly for patch management. Also, while NetChk Protect may reduce the chaos on your enterprise network, it won't eliminate it.

See whether NetChk Protect will be a useful and effective tool for managing Windows patches and keeping spyware at bay .
