Automated Patch Management

Making sure your business applications and operating systems are always using the latest software version is an effective way of maintaining and ensuring your network security is in optimal health.

The challenge most businesses experience is when there are too many endpoints on a network for one person to physically check and manage, or trust employees to do it themselves, then updates go unnoticed and security flaws present themselves

This is a problem which has become a lot more prominent with the increase of remote working and multiple endpoints per user.
