What You Need To Know

 

Patch Management is the practice of keeping all computing devices up-to-date with the software and operating systems installed on them. Security vulnerabilities are constantly being discovered in software and updates (or patches) regularly fix these issues and therefore shut down these routes.
Modern software often has the ability to do this automatically and on a schedule, but older software may need to be updated manually. It is not only computers, tablets and mobile phones that require updating; printers, storage systems, firewalls and networking devices will have updates issued by vendors as well.
