Shavlik today has announced that its Shavlik Protect product is now available in the Microsoft Azure Marketplace. This new availability allows users of Microsoft's Azure subscription service to install patch management capabilities quickly and give IT the ability to secure Cloud-based systems.

Shavlik Protect offers both agented and agent-less options and supports OS and third-party applications for both physical and virtual server instances. Shavlik, already a popular patching solution, discovers missing patches and helps automate the deployment.

Both Shavlik and Microsoft lauded the new release.
