Patch Management

Support - Patch Management

Patch management is the process of using a strategy and plan of what patches should be applied to at a specified time.

Functions of Patch Management and how it contributes to the ITaaS model:

  • Fixing security vulnerabilities and other bugs.

  • Improving the usability and performance.

  • Fix problems with libraries or with portions of source code for programs in frequent use or in maintenance.

  • Implementing a security patch applied to an asset to correct the weakness described by a vulnerability.

  • Hot patching is the application of patches without shutting down and restarting the system.
