Microsoft Windows is the most extensively used Operating System but manually applying windows updates to all computer devices in a network can be a tedious task for any technician. To streamline the patching process, use a Windows patch management system to automatically patch the enterprise network.
A patch management software creates a constantly aligned environment that is secure compared to known vulnerabilities discovered in Windows and other applications. Windows patching is the process of maintaining patches for Windows, from scanning and detecting missing patches to downloading and deploying the patches.
Using a Windows patch management solution, the entire Windows patching process can be automated, so technicians do not need to go to every computer and manually check whether all missing patches were detected and applied or not. Windows patch management tools also generate reports for technicians to reconfirm whether Windows patches have been deployed appropriately.
