Patch for Windows, powered by Shavlik

IAVA Overview

When you purchase the Government Edition of Ivanti Patch for Windows you will receive a license key that enables you to use the Information Assurance Vulnerability Alert (IAVA) Reporter. The IAVA-specific files are automatically installed when Ivanti Patch for Windows is installed.


The IAVA Reporter provides a cross reference of the existing patch definition file supplied by Ivanti and the IAVA XML file compiled by the U.S. Government. There is typically a two week gap between the time a new patch is released (by Microsoft or other vendors) and the time the patch is included in the IAVA XML file.

There are two different ways to get the latest version of the IAVA XML file:

By selecting Help > Refresh files on the Ivanti Patch for Windows console.

By downloading the file from Place this file into the appropriate folder where the Ivanti Patch for Windows folder is installed. For example:

C:\Program Data\LANDESK\Shavlik Protect\Console\DataFiles
