Avast Patch Management
Patch Management adds an important layer to your endpoint security foundation – improving overall protection and easing your workload.
What is Patch Management exactly?
Patches are released to fix vulnerabilities or security gaps in Windows operating systems and other application software. If patches are not applied in a timely manner, networks can be severely compromised.
While most businesses are aware of the importance of patching, many don’t do it because there are too many patches, patching often interrupts operations, and can cause problems with other systems.
Patch Management solves these issues by making it easy to identify and deploy critical patches and monitor ongoing activity from a central cloud management dashboard.
Easy-to-use console for ultimate control
Automatic patching fixes and updates Windows operating systems as well as thousands of third-party software applications.
Scan all devices for missing patches
Select the frequency of the patch scan, either daily, weekly, or monthly, and schedule when you would like the scan to take place.
All vendors, software applications, and severities will be patched automatically, but you can easily exclude individual ones from application patching if needed.
Review patch status
From the dashboard, you can view missing patches, patch names and severity levels, along with release notes, release dates, and more.
