Why is patch management so important?

The number of ransomware attacks is rapidly increasing with each passing day. For organizations with multiple servers and computers, ensuring that all of them are updated can be both time-consuming and challenging. Trying to manually manage these patches is not only a huge headache but also a major risk for businesses. Here are some key points about Patch Management to consider:
  • Patch management is one of the most important IT tasks in any organization as leaving software and operating systems unpatched puts your organization at risk of serious security breaches./li>
  • Soon after a security update is released, cybercriminals are already on the move, looking to exploit any unpatched systems. This is why security updates should be deployed in your systems as soon as possible.
  • Manually monitoring and applying these security updates is not only difficult but dangerous; even a slight delay in installing security updates could put your systems in a vulnerable position. Do you feel confident enough to bet on yourself in a race against today's cybercriminal?
  • Our patching software provides automated patch management which frees your IT administrators from the routine work of manually patching computers, so they can focus on other tasks that require their attention.
