When it comes to patch management the best defense is a good offense.
Cyber Security requires a proactive approach to forming a full securely layered environment.
Did you know that missing patches is one of the most common reasons for network security breaches?
Patches are updates pushed out to fix identified flaws. Typically, this occurs after the flaw has been identified as an exploitable vulnerability, applying patches in a timely fashion is critical to security.
Proactive patch management involves the active and continuous scanning of computers and other devices on your network for missing software updates and applying patches as soon as they are available.
Automated patch management can prevent missing updates and patching all while allowing you to focus on running your business. Automated patching is crucial to save businesses time and money.
However, did you also know it is important to test all updates and patching before applying in real time? There is always a chance that a patch and software are incompatible, automation of this process is therefore also crucial.
