Remote Patch Management- When fixes are required, the entire department groans, knowing that someone will have to stay late or work harder to complete the task. Most people despise patching since it takes time, but we have a solution at ITarian. Because of our patch management tool, our software will make patching a snap.
What is patch management?
Patch management refers to the process of distributing and installing software updates. These patches are frequently required to address software mistakes (also known as “vulnerabilities” or “bugs”).
Operating systems, apps, and embedded systems are all common places that will require fixes (like network equipment). A patch can be used to correct a vulnerability discovered after a piece of software has been released. This helps to ensure that your environment’s assets are not vulnerable to exploitation.
What is the purpose of patch management?
Patch management is critical for a number of reasons:
- Patch management helps your organisation lower its security risk by fixing vulnerabilities in your software and apps that are vulnerable to cyber-attacks.
- System uptime is supported by patch management, which guarantees that your software and applications are kept up-to-date and running properly.
- With the surge in cyber-attacks, regulatory agencies are increasingly requiring firms to maintain a particular degree of compliance. Patch management is an important part of meeting compliance requirements.
- Patch management can encompass more than just software bug patches; it can also include feature/functionality updates. Patches are important for ensuring that you have the most up-to-date version of a product.

Finding out methods to avoid problems from emerging before patches are ready to correct the problem should also be part of vulnerability management. This may need bringing that element of the system offline, but if it is a key component, a workaround may be required.
