Elemental Security and Patch Management

The constantly changing computer population on today’s networks—coupled with the multitude of applications installed on them and the constant flow of software and security updates—makes keeping track of which patches have been installed on what machines an enormous task. The Elemental Security Platform provides information regarding what is installed where and when it was last updated. This data helps administrators formulate and implement a patch management policy that promotes patch management security.

Patch Management Defined

Patch management is best accomplished by formulating a patch management policy that promotes patch management security.

Patch Management Prevalence

Patches provide a fast and generally efficient way to repair an application within a network. However, if not handled properly, every patch carries the potential for further damage. Therefore, a patch management policy and general patch management security are extremely important components of any IT operation.
