Linux Patch Management Software

Linux Patch Management Software Effective Defense Option For Linux Systems

If you have a Linux OS, you have probably heard of all the vulnerability problems. All operating systems have some vulnerability problems, which allow hackers and thieves to come in and steal/change your information. However, Linux patch management software is available through many different means and can be an effective defense against those attackers.

At Comodo, we believe that all systems should be protected. While many of our competitors only provide products for Windows-based systems, we know that many minority system users need protection, too.

20 Most Critical Vulnerabilities

Software vulnerabilities for the UNIX and Linux systems are some of the current programs listed as part of the top 20 most critical vulnerabilities by the US FBI and the SANS Institute. They can include:

  • Remote Procedure Calls (RPC)
  • Secure Shell (SSH)
  • Apache Web Server
  • File Transfer Protocol (FTP)
  • Line Printer Daemon (LPD)
  • Many More

As you can see, it is necessary to reduce the vulnerability of your system. While you still need a firewall and anti-virus software, Linux patch management is another option to ensure safety within your systems.

What Patches Do

When the developers of an OS or program find a bug or problem, they create hotfixes or patches for those problems. They roll them out to people, usually through their website, so that users can download them and apply them. However, the process of finding the patches and deciding if they're necessary can be overwhelming.

Our patch management software automates much of the process, allowing you to focus on other things. For example, we scan your systems and find out what patches are available. We provide this information to you in an easy-to-read format, so you can quickly see what needs to be done. We also list the patches in order of severity, so you can pick and choose which ones are more important. Contact us today to learn more about Linux patch management options.
