Patch Management

Patch Management

Throughout any given month there are new Microsoft security updates, anti-virus updates and particular application hot fixes that need to be acted upon. Nexus IT Solutions patch management provides an effective solution that address the five deployment steps — identification of required and approved updates, acquisition of update executables, distribution to appropriate control system nodes, installation and compliance auditing.

It is very common for the most critical security and application hot fix updates to go uninstalled for extended periods of time, or not be installed at all. Often the reasons are due to limited skilled resources and day-to-day judgment calls about what is more important; to either address an immediate need with a measurable business benefit or deploy the current batch of system software updates with their unknown and often un-quantified affect on system vulnerability. 

Our experience has shown many of the disruptive events could have been avoided, had the relevant update been applied in a timely fashion.

Patch Management Service automates routine aspects of software update deployment for timely dependable implementation, while freeing staff to devote more time to your own business. For large systems, the savings can add up to hundreds of hours per year.
