Security Patch Management: An Introduction

Easy To Deploy Patch Management Security Software

Security patch management is key to systems management and security; it is all about securing systems and managing patches, so as to prevent the entry of hackers or malware.

Patch management, as we know, is all about acquiring, testing and installing multiple patches to a system. This involves identifying available patches, deciding what patches are needed, ensuring proper installation of patches, testing of systems after patch installation, documentation of procedures etc.

Security Patch Management: Things to Know

Comodo has always been providing comprehensive patch management solutions to companies and organizations worldwide.

One thing that we all know about software vulnerabilities is that it's practically impossible to put a final stop to detecting and addressing vulnerabilities. You detect a vulnerability and apply a patch and the very next day another vulnerability comes up. Thus patch management ends up being an ongoing process and involves the following key things-

  • Detecting missing security patches using tools to scan systems.
  • Determining the severity of the vulnerabilities relating to the missing patches and deciding whether they pose a threat to the security of the systems.
  • Downloading patches for testing, if it's found that the security measures in place won't resolve the detected vulnerabilities.
  • Testing patches and then deploying them to systems.
  • Beginning the patch management process again by subscribing to notifications that give alerts about vulnerabilities.
