Patch management is a pressing and difficult challenge, thanks to the ever-increasing number of devices, applications, and vulnerabilities.
Maintaining the functionality and security of your critical systems and applications depends on being able to react fast to unscheduled patches for zero-day vulnerabilities. And the ability to identify unexpected patch failures that leave systems open to attack or downtime. It’s a time-consuming exhaustive process that requires visibility, real-time patch status reporting and alerts for your entire IT systems estate. Plus, tailor-made workflows for scheduling and handling patch distribution to servers and all endpoints – ensuring systems stay up-to-date, are compliant, and user productivity is assured.
Key challenges for patch management include:
- Keeping pace with a constant stream of security threats and patches
- Maintaining compliance across the IT estate
- Dedicating internal resources to keep all systems and endpoints up-to-date and safe
- Mitigating impacts from unexpected patching problems
