WAPT is a software and configuration deployment tool that may be compared to Microsoft SCCM (now called MECM), Ivanti UIM, IBM Bigfix, Tanium, OPSI, PDQDeploy, or Matrix42.

WAPT exists in two flavors, WAPT Discovery and WAPT Enterprise.

Main benefits

For System Administrators:

  • install software and configurations silently;

  • maintain up to date an installed base of software and configurations;

  • configure software at the system and user level to reduce the load on support teams;

  • remove unwanted or out of cycle software and configurations silently;

  • reduce your need for support by your IT teams, whose reaction times are often long because of their workloads;

  • reduce as much as possible the consumption of bandwidth on remote sites to preserve it for productive uses;

For IT Security Officers

  • pilot the software installed base to converge to a security standard acceptable to the Organization;

  • prepare your enterprise for the coming GDPR and help your DPO keep his register of data processing, because you two will become close colleagues;

  • no longer tolerate machines operating in Administrator mode;

  • no longer tolerate users downloading and running software binaries from their home directory;

  • start applying SRPs, also known as Applocker or WDAC to improve application level IT security;

  • reduce the level of exposure to software vulnerabilities and lateral movement attacks;

  • bring up audit indicators for a better knowledge of the state of installed IT devices and their global security level;

  • be prompt to deploy updates to react to cyber attacks like Wannacry or notPetya;

For End-Users

  • have your software configured to work well in the context of your Organization and trust that they will work correctly;

  • give Users more autonomy to install software safely and reliably;

  • have better working and more predictable work systems because of standard software configurations;
