The Problem with Patch Management Tools

Traditional patch management tools:

  • Fail to deliver comprehensive patch and OS visibility or compliance across WFH environments.
  • Require dozens or hundreds of staging servers, increasing overhead and points for failure.
  • Threaten to crash the operating environment every time they are run at scale.
  • Force admins to follow sub-optimal patching processes and accept lowered patch coverage.

Traditional patch management approaches require multiple tools to operate, place strain on the network, and leave organizations unable to apply all required patches in a timely manner – if at all.
