Lumension® Patch Manager DataCenter for Microsoft System Center provides centralized visibility, control and reporting for non-Windows platforms in heterogeneous environments.

Lumension®, a global leader in endpoint management and security, has launched Lumension® Patch Manager DataCenter for Microsoft System Center, a new application extension developed in cooperation with Microsoft to help enterprises secure vulnerabilities across complex Linux and UNIX server-based IT environments. Lumension Patch Manager DataCenter is a patch management solution that extends Microsoft System Center to deliver centralized visibility, control and reporting for heterogeneous datacenter environments.

Lumension Patch Manager DataCenter delivers powerful automation, flexibility and customizable capabilities tailored to enterprises’ Linux and UNIX server environments. It also reduces the complexity of managing multiple vendors’ solutions and content by providing a single interface for enterprise IT teams to manage needed Microsoft and cross-platform patching. The solution improves endpoint security and helps organizations meet compliance requirements by proactively mitigating vulnerabilities on Linux and UNIX servers, provides greater IT visibility, and centralizes compliance reporting.

“System Center 2012 Configuration Manger Service Pack 1 delivers new capability for managing Linux and UNIX servers and Lumension Patch Manager DataCenter builds on this,” said Andrew Conway, Director of Product Marketing, Microsoft. “The solution provides datacenter customers with advanced security patch management capabilities to help meet audit and compliance requirements for critical infrastructure. We are excited that Lumension chose to develop this important security patch management solution on System Center.”

Supporting both physical and virtual server systems, Lumension Patch Manager DataCenter provides robust patch management for non-Windows systems, with detailed reporting, to ensure patch deployment goals and compliance are effectively achieved. The extension also improves the end user experience by streamlining workflow, allowing IT teams to focus their energies on other security issues, and improving overall productivity by reducing business disruptions.

“With Lumension Patch Manager DataCenter, Microsoft System Center customers can now extend their capabilities to support heterogeneous datacenter environments while continuing to utilize a single solution,” said Russ Ernst, Director, Product Management, Lumension. “This extension was developed to help Microsoft customers extend consistent endpoint security and management of vulnerabilities across their datacenter, regardless of server operating systems.”
