New Health Checks Reduce Help Desk Troubleshooting Time While
Automating Security Hygiene

Adaptiva,
a leading, global provider of modern endpoint management and security
solutions, today announced a number of powerful new health checks and
remediations for its fully automated endpoint health and security
engine, Client
Health
. The latest health checks are designed specifically to help
enterprises improve Windows and application security compliance. This
brings the total number of health checks included in Adaptiva Client
Health to well over 100, with new checks solving problems in Windows
security, updates, and applications. The new health checks will be
demonstrated in Adaptiva's Super Tech-themed booth, #1925, at Microsoft
Ignite
, Sept. 24-28, 2018.

Adaptiva's latest Client Health checks and remediations come as Cybersecurity
Ventures
estimates that a ransomware attack occurred every 40
seconds in 2017. Even more troubling is the firm's prediction that by
the end of next year, an attack is projected to occur every 14 seconds.
With networks constantly under assault, costing companies potentially
billions of dollars, organizations no longer have the luxury of a 90-95%
success rate on Windows updates. They must improve their total endpoint
coverage.

"Security hygiene has become a serious concern in the enterprise
as cyberattacks near the epidemic stage. With our latest health checks
and remediations, Adaptiva makes automating endpoint health and hygiene
easier than ever," said Jim Souders, CEO of Adaptiva. "Security issues
are flooding already-overworked enterprise help desks. Client Health
will proactively alleviate any unwarranted vulnerabilities and when
problems do arise, an automated solution like Client Health can
radically speed troubleshooting time."

Automation Is the Answer

Adaptiva's Client Health product automatically checks the security
configuration management settings of endpoints, diagnoses any problems,
and fixes issues in seconds. It delivers IT professionals the automation
necessary to keep up with the pace of troubleshooting and resolving
endpoint security issues on a massive scale. Client Health's new checks
determine and address additional vulnerabilities, making it easier than
ever to put an end to poor digital hygiene. Additionally, enterprises
can create their own custom health checks and remediations without
writing a single line of code using the Client Health WorkFlow Designer
and Engine.

The new health checks bundle includes 15 new checks and remediations,
including:

                         
Health Check       Check Description       Remediation       Reason for Usage
Network – DNS Name Resolution       Checks whether the local hostname resolves to the correct IP address
in DNS.
      Yes – If the hostname resolves to an incorrect IP address, then a
registration request is sent to update DNS.
      Outdated or incorrect name resolution can cause numerous application
issues that rely on accurate name resolution.
System – Disk Cleanup       Checks whether systems have under a certain percentage of free disk
space.
      Yes – Runs the disk cleanup utility to remove the selected items in
an attempt to free disk space cleanly without disruption to the user
or risk of data loss.
      Machines running out of space are a concern to lots of IT
administrators, and they need a way to reclaim space without
compromising any data that the user may be storing in unknown
locations.
Windows Update – Last Scan Cycle       Checks when the machine last ran the software update scan cycle.       Yes – If a scan has not been run, then a new scan can be initiated
as a remediation.
      The scan cycle pulls down and compares the latest WSUS catalog with
the installed updates on the system. If the scan hasn't run
recently, the clients would not be aware of any new applicable
updates.
