With so many exploits targeting the operating system, browsers, and applications, there is a substantial argument to be had for considering a patch management solution. At ITarian, we understand that compliance and security are the primary reasons to consider the process. Most IT departments for small and large corporations tend to distribute patches as needed, but that may not be the best solution. Automatic distribution of patches is usually a better choice, because our product will:
- Find newly available patches
- Check your systems and computers to see if they're compatible
- Download the patches for you
- Provide you a report that tells you which patches are most needed
- Allow you to pick and choose which ones you deploy and when
The advantages of a centralized patch management system are many. You can disable the download agents for various software, such as Microsoft, Adobe, and Java so that our automated system handles all patching needs. This can save you time and effort because you're not patching from two sources. It can also save headaches when you prefer to do other off-hours processes, such as data replication or cloud backup.
For those who use a managed service provider (MSP), patching is a necessary service that should be provided. If you are a managed service provider and aren't offering patching solutions to your clients, you should consider doing so. With our product, it is easy, and you don't have to raise prices for customers.
Another benefit includes operational costs and needs. With a patch management system in place, which includes automation, you're reducing your time spent configuring, deploying and rebooting your systems.
