Patch Management

Patch Management

A patch is a security update which is designed to fix vulnerabilities in applications and plug-ins. Therefore Patch Management is the strategy and process used to determine what patches should be applied to which applications, and when. Implementing Patch Management best practices such as a tactical, integrated, and automated approach to handling vulnerabilities can boost your internet security, network security, and endpoint security. Successful Patch Management policies can also help with security audits and compliance audits.

The number of vulnerabilities affecting a typical end-point are rising considerably, with third-party programs primarily responsible for this trend – research revealed that third party programs have 3.83 times more vulnerabilities than Microsoft programs.* Therefore, a Patch Management policy for your third-party programs should sit seamlessly alongside your Microsoft Patch Management process.

That is why the Secunia Corporate Software Inspector (CSI) – our award-winning automated Patch Management software solution – integrates with Microsoft WSUS and Microsoft SCCM for easy deployment of third-party updates. Its authenticated vulnerability and patch scanner identifies installed programs and missing security patches, thereby making patching a simple and straightforward process for all IT departments. Secunia also has Patch Management tools for private individuals: the Secunia Personal Software Inspector (PSI).
