PatchLink Corporation, a global leader in providing the IT community with intelligent patch detection and deployment software and services, has announced that the Department of Agriculture (USDA) has chosen its patch and software distribution tool to help protect the agency's computer network from system vulnerabilities, such as viruses and problems that arise from out-dated software.

PatchLink Update 3.0(TM) provides a fast and efficient method for detecting these software-related security vulnerabilities and correcting them across all computer platforms and enterprise boundaries. PatchLink Update 3.0 is also being implemented by other private companies as well as federal and local agencies such as Montana's Department of Public Health and Human Services, Alaska Department of Revenue, National Institute of Health, Orange Unified School District, BankFirst, Digital Island and Ciena Corporation.

PatchLink Update 3.0 also incorporates a patent-pending Patch Fingerprinting technology that fully automates the patch process to provide a new method for tracking network computers that require patch and vulnerability updates.

PatchLink Corporation CEO Sean Moshir explained in more detail, "Our Patch Fingerprinting technology has been instrumental in establishing PatchLink Update as a premier detection and deployment tool for those seeking to implement proactive network security programs. The Patch Fingerprinting methods, systems, and configured storage media enable PatchLink Update to rapidly discover a software update, detect whether a given computer needs the software update and then, with a few mouse clicks, the administrator can automatically update computers as needed to duplicate this process across an entire network."
