Having a strong endpoint security foundation is crucial but antivirus alone isn’t enough. Avast Business Patch Management takes the guesswork out of patching by identifying critical vulnerabilities and making it easy to deploy patches from a central dashboard.
Patch management plays a critical role in endpoint cybersecurity. Patches are released to fix vulnerabilities or security gaps in Windows operating systems and other application software. If patches are not applied in a timely manner, networks can be severely compromised.
While most businesses are aware of the importance of patching, many don’t because there are too many patches, patching often interrupts operations, and patches can cause problems with other systems.
The new Avast Business Antivirus products, enhanced with Patch Management, solve these issues by making it easy to identify and deploy critical patches and monitor ongoing activity from a central dashboard.
How does patching work?
Select the frequency of the patch scan, either daily, weekly, or monthly and scheduled at the precise time when you would like the scan to take place.
All vendors, software applications, and severities will be patched automatically, but you can also easily exclude any application that you don’t want patched
From the console, easily see missing patches, patch name and severity level, along with release notes, release date, and more.
Keep Windows Operating Systems and other third-party software applications up to date automatically to prevent possible vulnerabilities or security gaps.
Identify outdated software, installed and failed to install security patches for company and regulatory compliance.
Scan all devices, set schedules, and receive reports from a single console for quick and easy patch management.
