The Importance of Patching
Patching is a vital practice of proper cyber hygiene. When a device is lacking the most recent security patches, attackers are able to exploit known vulnerabilities and perform a wide array of malicious actions. The constant flow of patches from software providers can overwhelm IT teams that lack centralized management. Scarlett Cybersecurity implements strict patching policies that ensure devices within your organization are maintaining only the latest security options. We have the ability to patch both "First-Party" operating systems and "third-party" applications, providing comprehensive updates to the entire ecosystem.
Coordinated Patching Services
Centralized patching services are compatible with any existing IT team and help provide a critical layer of defense.
Organization Patching Timeframes:
The Scarlett Cybersecurity team understands that certain devices are not able to be patched and restarted at all times. We work with your existing policies and uptime requirements to form customized windows. Our team is available 24/7/365 for support and we pride ourselves on maintaining best-in-class patch compliance.
The latest security - always:
Patches help prevent some annoying bugs and may resolve different user interface issues. However, these benefits pale in comparison to the security improvements gained by patching vulnerable software. When a device is up-to-date with patching, the risk surface is drastically reduced and augments the additional security controls to provide additional defense-in-depth capabilities.
Full Compliance Reporting:
Patch status updates are only as good as the associated reporting. Gain visibility into the true health of your networked devices with our easy-to-read patch reporting. These status updates will provide objective metrics that prove the network is protected.
