Software patch is a piece of code tailored to fix a bug, or to add new features in an application.Patch Management is the process of managing a network of computers by regularly performing patch deployment to keep computers up to date. There’s a saying that goes, “If you’re going to do it more than once, automate it.” This applies to a patch management process as well. Right from the detection of missing patches to the process of patch deployment to the endpoints, you can automate the entire patch management process with the help of our patch management tool. The entire process is streamlined through a centralized patch management server. Centralized patch management lets you deploy third-party software patch along with Microsoft software patch,and all of these from a central point of control.
This helps you reduce system-related failures so you can improve productivity and save on the costs associated with poor patch management. When utilizing automated patch management, you’re free to focus on core business activities that increase revenue instead of individually managing patches and updates on the plethora of devices in your network.
The next step is to identify the computers that require these patches. Patch Manager Plus automatically scans the computers in the network to detect the missing patches.
Test and approve
The downloaded patches are first tested in non-production machines; deploying untested patches in a production environment can be risky
With flexible deployment policies, you can not only select the deployment window but create patching policies as well.
After successful deployment, reports are automatically generated and the information is sent to the server.
