We understand what a pain it can be for IT to try and keep all those constantly evolving third party applications up to date. Servoyant makes these tasks easier! With the integration of Ninite Pro, and the ability to add Ninite Pro job to a policy in Servoyant, third party applications/software can be deployed and updated on a regular basis, automatically.

By default, this job utilizes the Servoyant-provided and integrated Ninte installer.

Hit the lookup icon to retrieve a list of all supported applications available via Ninite. There are currently 111 listed applications which are supported via Ninite. Servoyant updates this list on a weekly basis. You can select all the programs you want to install or patch in a given job.
