Managing and maintaining patches and updates on your network are traditional IT tasks, but over time the complexity of networks has evolved, making it a nearly monumental effort just to keep up. Growth in the number of desktop and remote clients like laptops, tablets and smartphones connecting to an organization’s network has stemmed from the drive to increase productivity, but with this level of growth comes the complexity and management effort of ensuring all systems are properly patched and up to date.
Without proper patch control, your network and the information contained within becomes vulnerable to known issues that might otherwise be addressed with proper patch maintenance.
BENEFITS OF IMPLEMENTING PROPER PATCH MANAGEMENT SOFTWARE INCLUDE:
1. Reduced time required to manage and maintain end-user and network devices
2. Increased security and reduced operational risk
3. Increased employee productivity and flexibility
4. Greater device flexibility and accessibility
5. Single-point management of desktop and network patching for security issues across applications, desktops, mobile devices, network infrastructure and more
