Modern organizations are physically dissolved and working from home has become a new practical approach to guarantee business stability in the modern world, but does this make a way for cyber-security threats waiting to take advantage of less secure home networks? System admins are already under pressure from the work structure’s quick changes as they struggle to obtain visibility over all their managed endpoints, and if they are not alert, attackers may take advantage of this.
Different offices and locations are used by organizations, and they are all managed from a central office. Remote Offices are those that are located away from the main office. It is possible for an organization’s offices to be connected through a single network.
Motadata helps organizations know why they need a remote patch management system in place and what they need to look for when performing patch management activities remotely. Now, let us see how they can achieve this with ServiceOps.
Implement patches with end-to-end visibility
The cybersecurity practices of a company must include security patches and updates. Without them, malicious actors may damage crucial servers, workstations, applications, and other network assets. While it might be difficult for IT teams to guarantee that each server and workstation receives the critical upgrades it need, the repercussions of neglecting to patch outdated assets can be severe.
Control over entire lifecycle of remote desktop patches
Even for firms that are committed to efficient patch management, managing the pace of security upgrades can be challenging for IT technicians and resources. Due to the nature of modern IT environments, thousands—or even tens of thousands—of assets require fixes frequently. The entire lifespan of patch installation can be made simpler with the use of remote patch management.
Direct download without any hassle
One of the major issues IT administrators have when moving to remote work is downloading and applying patches to distant computers. The server-hosted network experiences substantial Internet and VPN bandwidth usage because of remote agents connecting to the server and obtaining fixes. Motadata offers a function called the Direct Download option to guarantee regular patching in networks with bandwidth restrictions for Windows, Mac, and Linux agents.
Automatic patch deployment with ease
There can be new vulnerabilities and patches that the network machine is missing whenever it goes down and then regains network connectivity. When an agent encounters a server under the new automatic patch deployment (APD), the server is automatically inspected for missing patches and updated. During the deployment window of the following refresh cycle, the agent deploys them. As a result, there is no need to be concerned about the agent’s prolonged vulnerability or contact time. Patch installation in the old APD might have been delayed, because the agent only made communication with the server after the APD schedule.
