Efficient patch management for improved security
baramundi Patch Management & Managed Software
Keeping on top of patches and updates for software applications is essential for ensuring network security and providing users with new and improved features. But the volume of patches, shorter update cycles and constantly increasing cybersecurity threats make that important task a major challenge for IT administrators.
With baramundi Patch Management, you can distribute Windows updates and patches for most third-party applications reliably, quickly and efficiently. In contrast to WSUS, you can complete push updates exactly when and where needed with prompt and accurate reporting of results.
The Managed Software module automatically indicates the status of patches available for all endpoint applications. You receive all updates and patches as tested, ready-to-deploy packages from baramundi on a daily basis. That eliminates the time-consuming process of searching, packaging/parameterizing and testing patches and updates and increases IT security without disturbing users.
