Local company integrates security features with energy savings

News comes as Green IT week kicks off

Sydney based security solutions company Unixpac has integrated energy cost savings from vendor Shavlik with security settings in its latest software in a bid to simplify systems management and lower running costs.

CEO of Shavlik Technologies, Mark Shavlik, said the latest edition of Shavlik NetChk Protect 7.5 aims to reduce the cost of running computers by integrating changes to the power state of the computer while it is turned off, in hibernation mode or asleep.

“We have learned from utility companies and our customers that the need to automate the deployment of security patches has forced some energy savings ambitions off the agenda. By integrating these tasks with patch management in a centralised, easy-to-use console, we can make those Green IT initiatives viable,” he said in a statement.

The news comes as International Green IT Awareness Week commences June 1 to help raise awareness of environmentally friendly IT practices.
