Patch Management

Patch Management

Terminal provides automated patch management and deployment for our managed service customers.

Patches are critical.

Network World writes that nine out of ten successful hacks are waged against unpatched computers.

Without tools that automate the process, testing and deploying patches can be very time consuming. As new threats are discovered daily, the pace of patch release is unrelenting. Not surprisingly, too many systems are unprotected.

First, upgrade unsupported software. The cost of malware cleanup and data loss can dwarf the investment required to run the most recent operating system and software.

Second, use an automated patch solution. This will ensure all systems are up to date without any additional hours of work from your staff.

Terminal’s solution automatically deploys patches, and our network operations center will receive alerts about unpatched systems on your network:

  • Windows Servers
  • Windows Desktops
  • Antivirus definitions
  • Java
  • Microsoft Office
  • Microsoft Exchange
  • Adobe Flash
  • Adobe Reader
  • Browsers
  • Business Applications

Minimizing Downtime

Patching does not have to disrupt your business. Deployment can be scheduled overnight, eliminating downtime for users.

Terminal tests patches in an environment similar our customers’ networks, and only installs those that pass and are “whitelisted.” This reduces the chance of updates causing unexpected failures.

If you have questions about the vulnerability of your network, Terminal can perform a security audit that will identify threats from unpatched systems.
