Critical update service enhances performance and security


Westar Energy Topeka, KS – Critical update service enhances performance and security. The use of NSMC Control Center (formerly known as Asset Management and Software Distribution) is enabling Westar Energy to ensure timely non-intrusive distribution of key security patches and system updates.

“The problem with many of the Internet Explorer security patches and service packs is they require a system restart after being applied. This creates a problem for system administrators that are trying to remotely manage their customer base. Forced reboots, even when scheduled, are at best intrusive and at worst can cause the loss of data should the end user forget and leave something open,” according to Russell Dyke. “We needed a better solution and Insystek, Inc. was quick to step up to the plate.”

The method chosen by Westar Energy employs a “Critical Updates” folder on the Start Menu that contains links to the NSMC distributed security patches and system updates. The end user can then process the patches and updates on their schedule. This allows the end user to control the timing of the system restart for their workstation. This continues the non-intrusive theme provided by NSMC, which operates without requiring a client on the target workstation.

The use of NSMC Control Center provides the asset management necessary to accurately target the workstations requiring software distribution. The NSMC integration into the Microsoft operating system provides accurate display of workstation connectivity. This along with their software distribution queuing methodology that holds scheduled distributions for workstations that are not currently connected until their next login, allows for timely and accurate software distributions.

“One of the features we were pleasantly surprised with was the ability to perform ‘checkpoint restart’.” This is a built-in feature for the NSMC Scheduler service providing for automatic restart from point of failure should the service loose connectivity or need to be restarted. “This feature allowed us to maximize the throughput on the NSMC Scheduler service without having to worry about overloading and having to start over from scratch.”

Westar Energy Deploys Critical Updates Using NSMC Software Distribution


Topeka, KS – Westar Energy recently completed an enterprise wide critical update software distribution using Insystek, Inc.’s NSMC. The critical update consisted of service pack 6a for Windows NT and service pack 3 for Windows 2000 Professional as well as other smaller security patches. The size of the software distribution exceeded 250 MB to each of the 1,100 + workstations in their enterprise.

The software distribution queuing process used by NSMC allowed for a better than 97% successful distribution rate. The remaining less than three percent of the workstations were either never powered on within the environment, returned to inventory since the initiation of the software distribution, or had a configuration problem that required a technician to resolve.

Westar Energy officials were extremely pleased with the results, given the massive size of the distribution itself and the extremely high success rate. The most amazing part of the success is NSMC was able to perform all of this without any client code on the target workstations. The NSMC product suite is able to accomplish asset management, system monitoring, and software distribution by leveraging technology built into the Microsoft Windows operating system.
