Patch management is an effective approach to managing updates applications, software, and technologies. Patching repairs any system vulnerabilities to maintain security within information systems and can apply to different parts of an IT infrastructure.
As soon as a software, application or operating system is released, there are hackers looking for ways to break into these systems. Patches strengthen the security of your chosen software and applications and are released by the manufacturers of the software and applications.
Patches are code updates that manufacturers provide to prevent a newly discovered virus or worm from making a successful attack. From time to time, manufacturers combine patches and upgrades into a comprehensive update application called a service pack. Many devastating virus attacks could have been much less severe if more users had downloaded and installed the latest service pack.
