Patch Management


Coates IT & Network Solutions Patch Management reduces the costs of keeping your infrastructure current with Microsoft security releases by automating the identification, prioritization, and mitigation of Windows security patch vulnerabilities. We deploy patches on a schedule or on-demand to one or multiple devices, and multi-tiered distribution minimizes the bandwidth required. You can schedule post-deployment system reboots for convenience, and more than 400 products and versions are supported.

One of the biggest challenges facing security administrators today is the ability to determine which security concerns are the most pressing, and then to address them quickly and effectively to minimize risks. CERT estimates that almost 100% of the vulnerabilities, such as SQL Slammer, could have been avoided with proper and timely patching. With Microsoft releasing upwards of 100 patches a year, security administrators see Patch Management as an increasingly time consuming job that is almost impossible to track manually.

Disasters can come in many forms and they can happen when you least expect it. Only 6% of companies that suffer catastrophic data loss survive while 43% never reopen and 51% close within 2 years of the disaster. 93% of the companies that did not have their data backed up in the event of a disaster went out of business.
