Monitors and filters incoming and outgoing network traffic based on your organization’s previously established security policies.
When a vulnerability is found after the release of a piece of software, a patch can be used to fix it.
Efficient Patch Deployment
Identify which servers run mission-critical applications.
Stay abreast of patch releases from vendors whose software your business uses
Test the patches in a test environment before deploying them to production systems.
Automate the process of deployment to save time and to maintain hygiene in the IT environment.
Generate reports on the various patch management tasks. Documenting patching procedures and implementations.
Another major benefit of patch management is increased productivity. Often patches come with performance improvements for the products they apply to or fix crashes. Helping employees (their systems to be more precise) get rid of these issues will lead to a productivity boost.
The world of technology is moving at a fast pace. And having an automated patch management software in place will help your organization keep up with the latest advancements in the technology without you having to do much about it. Because software patches usually contain new features or functionality and extend support to additional platforms.
Most automated enterprise patch management tools carry out the patching process by deploying or installing agents on target computers. These agents provide a connection between the centralized patch server and the computers to be patched. They also carry out patching related tasks like sending alerts to the server, storing patches locally on the target computer prior to installation and automatically retrying failed patch installations etc.
