Latisys OS Patch Management
Shield Your Systems from Abuse
The National Vulnerability Database (NVD) published 5,239 vulnerabilities in 2012, which equates to roughly 15 new vulnerabilities EVERY DAY, over which a third of are considered high risk. This leaves the average un-patched system susceptible to anywhere between 10 and 20 new potential major security issues each month. Hackers depend on these bugs within operating systems and applications to gain access to systems and data without appropriate authorization. If your systems are not being updated regularly, you are undoubtedly at risk. Latisys Patch Management Services update your systems during a regularly scheduled maintenance window every month and critical updates to protect against zero-day exploits are applied immediately following release from an operating system vendor. Two separate windows are offered so that you can have your test/development systems updated to allow for testing prior to updating your production systems.
It's About More Than Just Security
While security is a chief concern, protecting your systems against vulnerabilities is NOT the only benefit of patching them. Patches are also often released to address problems with an operating system or application that prevent it from functioning as it was designed or are impacting its overall performance. Allowing a system to fall multiple revisions behind its most current software release can also hinder its ability to operate optimally for your users or to integrate with new technology that can significantly benefit your IT infrastructure. Don’t tolerate sub-par performance from your systems by limiting them with out of date software, let Latisys manage your patches on a monthly basis so that you don’t have to worry about it!
