What is Patch Management?

Patch Management is a fully managed service where we can remotely update your devices keeping them updated, stable and secure.

Patch Management is critical for the following reasons:

  • Patches can address specific bugs or flaws in a product
  • Patches can improve performance or stability
  • Patches can fix a security vulnerability

Why does your business need a Patch Management service?

Security…

This is the main reason why businesses are using a patch management service and it’s critical for not only highlighting, but fixing, vulnerabilities.

With cyber-attacks appearing more frequently in the news, it’s imperative businesses keep their devices updated to help stop hackers exploiting security weaknesses. In fact, with your devices patched you are less likely to be affected by a cyber-attack as around 70% of cyber-attacks exploit known vulnerabilities. A patched server or PC is less susceptible to malware and other viruses, it’s that simple!

Productivity…

Having a service that updates your devices, regularly and proactively, keeps your infrastructure consistent as patches can include performance improvements and fix errors which are frequently causing your systems to crash. Working on the latest patch will help stop regular crashes and, having updates that run out of hours leaves employees free to work without the hassle of downtime.

A fully managed Patch Management service can also free up the pressure of your Internal IT and give you peace of mind that your devices are running the correct and updated patches.

When not managed correctly however, update services can stop, fail and be overridden by end users. The best and secure way to handle patch management is through a controlled and dedicated service.
