We have 4 different subscription offerings:
As you can see...Atea AppUpdate fulfills all your patching needs. No matter on which platform and how you want to get your hands on those patches.
Most companies use the same base applications. Atea has identified more than 100 most commonly used applications, which are typically released in new versions - with security updates or service packs - several times a year. The list includes applications like Adobe Reader, Adobe Flash, iTunes, Google products, VLC and many more. Whether applications are a part of the company image, or deployed using a software distribution system such as Microsoft SCCM or Altiris, the daunting job of keeping them updated in a timely fashion is the same.
Atea AppUpdate service saves you time and money on maintaining commonly used applications. All packages are fully documented and ready to be deployed.
It actually depends on the different vendors and them releasing updates/fixes for their applications. We continously monitor for new releases and guarantee that within 72 hours after a release we will make available a new application package. Some application packages get updated up to 20 times per year, while other only get a single or two updates per year - as mentioned it depends on the vendor.
Yes and no...
Yes, because you are more than welcome to contact us and give us suggestions of which application packages you would like to see in AppUpdate in the future.
No, because it is at our sole discretion to decide what is in and what is out. We will of course at all times make sure that the included application packages are relevant for you as a customer and that they present a value add for you and your end-users.
Absolutely and we recommend it.
If you look through the list of application packages included in AppUpdate you will see that you use quite a few of them on your PCs and all of them most likely get updated/fixed by the vendor several times per year. All of the application packages included in AppUpdated are fully documented and ready to be deployed through for example SCCM or Altiris. You just need to import them and you a ready to go.
We will make sure that you are automatically notified when new releases are made available.
Everybody also receives a mail notification like the following example:
To change who in your company gets notified, you can log into the site shown at the bottom of the notification mail and change the recipients list.
Atea AppUpdate is a subscription service and you can consume as much or as little as you like. It does not matter if you distribute the application packages to 50 or 5000 PCs - it is all part of your subscription.
It is possible to buy subscriptions valid for 1, 2 or 3 years. The 2 year subscription is our most popular agreement length.
AppUpdated is licensed per legal entity and it though depends on the relationship between the companies in the group. But, from a starting point, a license per legal entity/company in the group is needed.
Yes it is - unless you give us at least 1 month written notice prior to the end date of your subscription to cancel it.
Yes and no.
Yes, you can cancel your subscription at any time.
No, you will not receive a refund for unused parts of your subscription.
