Patching your systems and software is a necessity, but most IT departments don't know how to do it correctly or may not have the manpower to do so. At ITarian, we believe that setting up your patch management audit program to coincide with our patch-management tool is the best option. However, if you don't know how to set up the process, we can help.
The audit program should consist of a particular process that makes it automatic for everyone involved. Many corporations have a large IT department, and if someone else is tasked with patching, they need to know what to do and when. The goals include:
- Risks should be reduced or mitigated
- Tracking compliance is a necessity
- Find future weaknesses with the product of your choice
- ISMS (Information Security Management System) should be effective
- Areas for improvement within the system or ISMS
- Testing and Reporting
When you implement a patch management process, you must be sure that the goals are conducive and fit your needs.
With our product, you'll be able to reduce the risks to the software and OS because it will tell you which patches are most needed. You'll also be able to track your compliance with our timely reports. We show you which patches have been applied and how current the updates are, so you can make sure the networks are secure.
While we don't scour the Internet to find potential threats and when they may occur, our product will scan for new patches as often as you prefer. You can set it to scan every day or once a month, depending on your needs, so future weaknesses in the system can be caught immediately. contact us today to learn more.
