How Automation Simplifies Patching and Security Vulnerabilities in IT Infrastructure 

For any business with a large inventory of devices, keeping them up-to-date with the latest security patches is no easy task. Deploying patches manually can be time consuming, cumbersome, and prone to errors. One of our customers faced this exact problem when they had an inventory of over 1000 devices—and their process for patching was taking 2-3 weeks. In this blog post, we’ll discuss how automation simplifies patching and minimizes security vulnerabilities in IT infrastructure. 

The Benefits of Automating Patch Management 

Automating patch management is key to any organization’s success when it comes to IT infrastructure. Automation eliminates the need for manual deployment, which can be error-prone and tedious. Additionally, automation ensures that all servers are updated with the latest patches on a regular basis. This reduces the risk of missing patches or deploying outdated ones which could potentially cause system vulnerabilities. With automated patching, businesses can also avoid wasting time coordinating between teams before and after deployment since everything is done automatically. Finally, reports generated by automated patching provide detailed insights into the status of your infrastructure at any given point in time.

How Automation Works 

Implementing our automated patch solution requires only a few simple steps. First, we identify the machines you want to patch and deploy agents on those machines if necessary (these agents will report back about the status of each machine). Next, we create a baseline for each machine by defining what patches should be applied and set up schedules for them to be deployed regularly. Once these steps are complete, our solution will continuously monitor all machines for new updates which will then be deployed as soon as they become available without any manual intervention required.

Keeping servers secure from potential vulnerabilities often means spending countless hours manually deploying security patches—but it doesn’t have to be that way! Automating patch management significantly simplifies this process while reducing errors associated with manual deployments and increasing visibility into your IT infrastructure with detailed reports generated post-patching. Our Cloud Infrastructure Management Services  provide businesses with an opportunity to maintain high levels of security through our automated patch management solutions. Automation is key when it comes to managing your organization’s IT infrastructure; it keeps systems secure while allowing CIOs, CTOs and VPs alike to focus on more important tasks rather than worrying about manual deployments gone wrong!
