HEAT Software, a leading provider of Cloud Service Management and Unified Endpoint Management software, announced today that its HEAT® PatchLink® security product and HEAT® AntiVirus solution are now OPSWAT Certified Security Applications at the Silver level for Patch Management and Anti-malware. The OPSWAT Certification Programme is the industry standard for endpoint security software vendors to confirm interoperability — a key factor in preventing connexion issues and assuring a consistent user experience. OPSWAT Certified Security Applications go through rigorous testing to ensure compatibility with leading access control technologies. It is essential that companies implement rigorous security solutions to prevent and control ongoing cybersecurity issues, such as malware and ransomware. HEAT PatchLink provides rapid, accurate and secure patch management for heterogeneous operating systems, Microsoft security and non-security vulnerabilities, third-party applications, and endpoint configurations. HEAT AntiVirus provides advanced protection via traditional signature-matching and partial signature matching capabilities as well as embedded malware detection and heuristic and sandboxing techniques to provide proactive protection against zero-day threats. HEAT Software’s endpoint protection solutions help companies proactively manage threats and IT risk even in the most complex environments. At the Silver level, HEAT PatchLink and HEAT AntiVirus have been certified to have strong compatibility with leading technology solutions, can be detected, and support some assessment and remediation actions. With the newly awarded certification, companies are assured that these HEAT solutions work seamlessly with leading network access solutions from vendors such as Cisco, Citrix, Pulse Secure and many others. “Now more than ever, companies must ensure that their cybersecurity solutions provide the armour and protection they need to keep their IT systems, devices, data, and operations safe and secure,” said John Ferron, CEO of HEAT Software. “OPSWAT Silver Certification is a stamp of approval further validating that HEAT Patchlink and HEAT AntiVirus help provide a strong defence against malware, ransomware, and other ongoing cybersecurity problems that target companies and consumers alike.” HEAT PatchLink’s key capabilities:
- Desktop and Server Operating Systems: Heterogeneous OS support provides easy patch and remediation administration across multiple platforms including Windows, Linux, Unix, and Mac OS X. Microsoft patch coverage includes security and non-security content for operating systems back to Windows XP / Server 2003, and applications such as Office®.

- HEAT PatchLink for Microsoft System Centre: HEAT PatchLink for Microsoft System Centre has all your System Centre patching needs covered, from the data centre to the desktop.
