Flexera Software FlexNet Connect Enhancements Lower Costs and Risks of Application Updates for Software Vendors, Intelligent Device Manufacturers and Their Customers
Flexera Software, the leading provider of Application Usage Management solutions for application producers and enterprises, today announced a major upgrade to FlexNet Connect, which delivers the most efficient way to provide end-users with the latest software updates and obtain valuable insight on their product use. This latest release significantly enhances producers’ and their customers’ ability to control the application update experience while also enabling valuable analytics by collecting anonymized system and application data, helping producers improve their products.
Today’s enhancements are particularly critical, because Flexera Software research shows that the majority of application producers are exposing their end users to avoidable security risks and are not taking advantage of an automated update management solution like FlexNet Connect to lower support calls and costs. According to that research, only 17 percent of application producers update their software in an automated fashion; 47 percent rely on end users to visit a support site to get updates (which frequently doesn’t happen); and 12 percent make end users wait for the next software release to fix problems with their applications, since they do not send out patches or updates their applications.
