VMware vCenter Protect Advanced, designed for companies of all sizes, provides centralized patch management, asset inventory, antivirus, power management, and configuration management for both virtual and legacy physical systems in an integrated solution. This includes centralized management for Windows operating systems and the most widely used Windows-hosted applications running on both virtual and physical servers and workstations.
Continuously scan and deploy all available patches - in particular, critical security patches - for deployed software. vCenter Protect Advanced makes patch management, a core of good security, an automated task that does not consume IT administrators' time, enabling them to focus on business optimizations.
Discover and maintain a current inventory of all hardware and software assets, whether physical or virtual.
Run and maintain antivirus software across all platforms in an integrated fashion, lowering costs and increasing security; an "antivirus plus patch" approach is a key to network security.
With the Wake-on-LAN feature, bring machines online for patching, then power them down, enabling security management during power-off cycles to lower management costs. You can also schedule power settings for savings without business disruption.
Quickly solve and automate many common workflow process challenges with ITScripts. You can use ITScripts to build unique workflow processes quickly and easily.
Snapshot backup recovery
Take and manage "snapshots" of virtual machines - immediately before and after patching - while automating the backup process, so that a current and relevant backup copy of the virtual machine is immediately available for rollback or disaster recovery.
