Applications of all kinds requires continual updating to maintain optimal security and performance. The most common method of issuing updates is a “patch” or small piece of software added to correct some performance or security flaw.
Today, missing or outdated patches are a major cause of network security breaches. The process by which you decide when, where and how to apply updates is called Patch Management, and it’s one of the easiest and most effective deterrents you can implement. Because it’s faster, safer and more economical, IT experts, including Singular Security, consider automated patching (versus manual) a network security best practice.
Through our Patch Management solutions and services, Singular Security can help you:
- Understand each patch’s purpose and possible unintended “side effects”
- Establish and define a patch management, distribution and implementation policy
- Create and customize an automated, seamless, system-wide patching process
- Implement tools that scan network and devices for patch-related vulnerabilities
In cases when a patch can’t be deployed, Singular Security can provide expert guidance in implementing other compensating security controls.
