What is Patch Management
Patch management is a strategy for managing patches, also known as upgrades, for software and applications. Patch management services allow your business to tackle these changes efficiently and effectively. Software patches are often used to fix existing issues with software that are not updated upon the initial release. These patches often have to do with security or other specific functionality pieces of the program.
Security is the most obvious reason why companies would want to have an automated patch management solution in place. One of the main reasons why software vendors release new patches is to fix security vulnerabilities that can be exploited by malicious software or people intending to damage your IT systems or network. Applying security patches in a timely fashion greatly reduces the risk of having a security breach and all the related problems that come with it, such as data theft, data loss, reputation issues or even legal penalties.
Efficiency and Productivity
An efficient system that deploys patches network-wide helps to improve the productivity of the company in many ways. Often patches come with performance improvements or crash fixes for the products they apply to, which can lead to a productivity boost. The improved security also helps productivity; in the majority of cases, the worst effect of malware is not the theft of company sensitive data, but rather the loss of computer resources used to run the malicious scripts.
Recently compliance has become an important driver for companies to implement a patch management solution. Government institutions, companies offering financial services, and healthcare organizations are among the most affected by these regulations, but the trend is that all companies will need to be secure enough to be able to protect the privacy and data of their employees, customer and partners.
Keep up with Features
Patches often contain new features, adding new functionality or extending support for additional platforms. For organizations this often translates into opportunities to improve or extend their services.
