macGuardian
Performance Enhancement Package

Protect your assets by automating critical updates.

No machine is immune to the vulnerabilities that exist in the technology world. Ideally, our computers would live in an threat-resistant, virtual bubble. But realistically, applying security updates to every computer on your network is a necessary task that needs to be done multiple times throughout the year. While these responsibilities may be inevitable, macGuardian‘s patch management solution reduces the time it takes to update machines on your network by automating the distribution process. It also empowers you to approve what patches are distributed, and when.

With macGuardian, you can schedule releases during “off” hours in order to minimize the impact this process can have on your end users. In emergencies, you can also release or force patches immediately. The flexibility of macGuardian allows you to choose the best distribution strategy for the needs of your organization. macGuardian integrates seamlessly with Apple’s Software Update Server (SUS), your own update server, or if you want to use SUS with approved updates. This flexibility is just one of the many ways macGuardian works with Apple technologies to provide the most sophisticated tools for Mac administrators.

With the advanced patch management capabilities of macGuardian, your machines will be protected, up-to-date, and secure at all times.
