Syxsense, a global leader in IT and endpoint security management, announced today that their new version of Syxsense Secure now includes powerful automation tools for comprehensive Linux management.
The complexities of Linux patch remediation abound. Each Linux Distribution (Redhat, Debian, Ubuntu, Centos and more) uses slightly different commands, patches are released on unpredictable schedules, and deployment requires in-depth scripting knowledge. Syxsense simplifies large scale Linux server management, without requiring manual scripting. Syxsense users can receive full endpoint intelligence of OS, hardware, and software inventory details, and know if patches are missing or security standards are compromised. Syxsense Cortex, the company’s powerful visual workflow designer, now includes prebuilt actions to control pre- and post-patching necessities such as reboots or rollbacks while ensuring smooth, uninterrupted patch remediation and software deployment.

“The increase in hacker activity against Linux infrastructure makes it imperative that administrators respond quickly. The detailed control that drew them to Linux requires a solution that harnesses that power without sacrificing productivity. Syxsense now easily delivers that continuous automation, protecting the health of every endpoint,” stated Ashley Leonard, CEO of Syxsense. “The ability to manage the patching of Linux systems from within the same console that controls Windows, Windows Server, and MacOS systems is a powerful bonus to IT.”
Syxsense will host a webcast covering these new features plus which patches to prioritize for IT professionals tasked with maintaining their corporate Linux infrastructure. The webcast will be held on Tuesday, October 26th at 11am ET. Interested IT professionals can register to attend at.
