Managed Updates

86%  of reported vulnerabilities come from non-native applications. With automated patching of applications and the operating system, you can significantly reduce that risk.

Why do you need Managed Updates?

Patch management on non-native Microsoft OS and Office applications is a significant challenge for many organisations. Without a centralised management system, end users are left updating third party applications of their own accord. Industry statistics count two-thirds of all non-native applications out of date, exposing the majority of these applications to vulnerabilities. 

Managed Updates ensures your desktop and server environment are always up to date. We proactively distribute and install third-party patches to significantly reduce your software vulnerabilities and your infrastructure attack surface. 

Benefits we can provide

  • Reduce risk and vulnerabilities by maintaining a current environment.
  • Always take advantage of the latest software capabilities, fully maximising your investment.
  • Receive monthly compliance reports, giving you peace of mind your systems are secure. 
  • Maintain control over the your environment by choosing which devices are updated on what schedule. 
  • Benefit from enterprise grade patch management systems, with a monthly, per device cost and zero up-front fees. 

A choice of deployment models 

Third-party applications are categorised as low or medium risk, based on the potential impact and inter-dependencies with your environment. There are three deployment models available depending on the level of control you wish to have over your low and medium risk applications. 

Default - Subscribed devices will have all supported patches ready for self-service installation. This gives you and your end users full control to select which patches to install. 

Automated low risk - All low risk application updates are automatically downloaded and installed. 

Automated medium risk - All medium-risk applications are automatically downloaded and installed.
