PATCH MANAGEMENT

Ensure you are keeping up to date with a core pillar of security and compliance

KEEP ON TOP OF A CRITICAL IT ADMIN TASK, FREEING YOUR STAFF TO INNOVATE

Patching came into the public consciousness in Spring 2017 when the ransomware, WannaCry hit many large public and private sector organisations, the biggest being the NHS. There was public outcry when it was understood that organisations could have avoided the attack with a Microsoft patch that was released two months prior.

However, what the public failed to understand (Or be educated about) was that patching is a complicated, difficult and expensive operation to undertake. Many businesses fail to get on top of their patch problems due to the sheer undertaking of the task.

Torix’s Patch Management service takes away the burdensome task of having to manage patching internally, providing a fully managed service. Using industry leading RMM (Remote Management and Monitoring) software, combined with a dedicated, expert Patching team, our patch management service will ensure that you are minimising your risk of cyber attacks, keeping disruption to a minimum, all in a cost effective, efficent manner.

A MANAGED ALTERNATIVE TO WSUS AND SCCM

One of the major issues organisations face when trying to address patching is the very real possibility that a patch could cause end user disruption and downtime. Couple this with the complexity of patch management tools such as WSUS and SCCM, it is no wonder IT techs struggle to keep on top of patch management. Enterprise organisations don’t have this problem – they have whole server farms dedicated to testing patches, but small and medium sized organisations typically do not have the budget to attain such a resource.

Torix’s Patch Management service offers an alternative to patch management tools like WSUS. Enabling small and medium sized businesses to employ the same techniques as large enterprise – By throughly testing Microsoft Security Rollups against common hardware and software configurations, allowing for identification of issues before a patch is rolled out.

ECONOMIES OF SCALE WITH GRANULAR CONTROL

Our default patch polices are designed to provide strong compliance mixed with minimum service disruption. However, no two organisations are the same, for which our Patch Management team will work with to create custom patch policies – you can dictate which patches to install and how to install them. Furthermore, our team will notify you when devices are out of compliance with your assigned policy settings.

On top of this, you are provided with detailed monthly reporting showing the patch status health of your organisation.
