What is Patch Management

Patch management is an important part of keeping things running smoothly. Between security updates, new features, and keeping you in compliance, it is a necessary piece of any IT plan. Proper patch management increases productivity, decreases downtime, and ensures you have the latest and greatest systems.

Why use Patch Management

Patch management is required to help protect against found bugs and security flaws. Many security hacks are caused by software and devices being out of date. On varying schedules, developers will push updates that are meant to resolve some of the thousands of flaws noticed every year. Staying on top of these keeps you, your users, and your clients safer on the internet. Doing patch management properly also ensures much less downtime and slowness for users throughout the day increasing your productivity. Most importantly, updates need to be tested before being sent to your specific network.

What is the “right way”

Patch management, when done right, looks seamless to the end user. We are able to do this through automation, testing, and properly applying updates. Researching updates and ensuring there are no new issues caused for the systems you use is mandatory in ensuring network uptime. Having TTS handle your patches makes this entire process happen in the background. All you and your users need to do is focus on their work rather than worry about what to do when they see update notifications.
