Lawrence Garvin, Product Manager for SolarWinds Patch Manager, a third-party patch management solution, has joined the APMdigest Vendor Forum.

SolarWinds provides powerful and affordable IT management software to more than 93,000 customers worldwide - from Fortune 500 enterprises to small businesses.

The company believes that the IT pros who use their products everyday should be excited about them. That's why they put their users first in everything they do, and strive to deliver powerful functionality while making the users' jobs easier. They call it "user-centric software," and they believe that it's changing expectations for the enterprise software experience.

SolarWinds products are downloadable, easy to use and maintain, and provide the power, scale, and flexibility needed to address users’ management priorities. The SolarWinds online user community, thwack, is a gathering place where tens of thousands of IT pros solve problems, share technology, and participate in product development for all SolarWinds products.

Lawrence Garvin, M.S., MVP, MCITP, has been working with Microsoft Windows Server Update Services (WSUS) and Software Update Services (SUS) since the release of SUS SP1 in 2003, and update management, generally, since the creation of Windows Update in 1998.

Prior to joining EminentWare (now part of SolarWinds) in 2009, he offered Windows Server Update Services expertise, as Principal/CTO of Onsite Technology Solutions, to companies worldwide including deployment, implementation, and troubleshooting advice.

His extensive experience is put to work in managing the development of Patch Manager as a powerful WSUS extension to manage third-party patches, helping companies get more from their investments in Microsoft technologies.

Lawrence is also an independent WSUS evangelist and is a frequent contributor to WSUS forums and other online community sites.
