At DEMOfall 2006: Trigence lets you patch with confidence
We IT types are acutely aware of the increased rate of release of OS and application patches to keep up with the ever so shorter window available to mitigate threats due to vulnerabilities. With the increased pressure to deploy patches quickly, we have less and less time to verify all applications with the patches. Therefore, the frequency of user's losing productivity due to unexpected impact on applications from patches is reaching unacceptable levels.

Virtualization of applications is a potential solution and a real need. Trigence claims to simplify app virtualization.

Kevin also pointed out a competitive product that he has been wanting to try from altiris.

I can see these products joining the standard toolbox at all IT shops in the very near future.
