Installing Software & Updates

Manage Software Updates, OS Rollouts, and Patches.

The Constant Flow of Software Updates

With new software and OS versions being released frequently to patch security vulnerabilities, it is crucial to manage your updates and ensure that your IT environment is always up to date. Installing software can be a cumbersome process, the same applies to Operating Systems. Updating software on hundreds, sometimes even thousands of devices, can be a real hassle. A first challenge is knowing exactly which software is installed on which computer.

Build A Comprehensive Software Inventory

By using one of the Lansweeper scanning methods for Windows, you can discover assets in your network and also automatically scan installed software and their version. You can use IP range, Active Directory or Workgroup scanning to get a complete overview of all software installations and versions in your network.

Gain Insights Through Software Reports

Use the built-in reports, in combination with the dashboards to create an overview of what is present in your network. You can even create fully customized reports which display just the information you need: a list of Google Chrome installations and their versions, an overview of all assets without the latest OS update, all assets with your preferred anti-virus software installed on it and much more. Create the perfect report for any situation.

Track Vulnerabilities with Security Insights

Constant updates to your software pose a constant risk of new vulnerabilities popping up. In order to respond quickly to potential threats, it is essential to know which vulnerabilities may be affecting your network at all times. Lansweeper's Security Insights draws from NIST Vulnerability Database to give you a complete overview of all known vulnerabilities. This way you can easily track which assets may be at risk, as well as the severity of each vulnerability, allowing you to prioritize and immediately intervene where it is needed the most.

Vulnerability Reports

Where software versions can be identified, vulnerability reports check if the software is not missing any security patches which could leave it exposed.‚Äč

Security Insights

Find all known vulnerabilities that are currently a threat to your network using Lansweeper's Security Insights and take action where needed.

Monthly Patch Tuesday Report

Every month, Microsoft releases a scheduled security fix, known as 'Patch Tuesday'. We create a monthly report which checks if the assets in your network are on the latest Patch Tuesday update.

Deploy Software Patches

Mitigate security risks by silently installing and uninstalling software, deploy software updates, make command-line changes, kill processes and run custom scripts.

Automatically Deploy Software & Patches

With the Lansweeper deployment module, you can create deployment packages that install, remove or update software, perform command line or registry changes and even run custom scripts. Deploy packages any way you want. Customize your deployments to control how, when and on which machines your custom deployment packages are executed. Deploy your packages using different security contexts to either do a silent deployment or user specific changes.

Keep watch on your OS's Lifecycle

Keeping your OS patched and up-to-date is a crucial step in keeping your network secure, which is why it is even more important to keep track of those that have gone end-of-life. Lansweeper Cloud lets you keep track of your OS lifecycle so you can stay on the lookout for any that are about to go or have gone end-of-life. This way you can ensure the security of your network by making sure that your machines are running a supported and regularly updated OS.

Start Building Your IT Asset System of Truth

Discover assets you don't even know about and eliminate network blind spots.
