Automated Patch Management

Anonymous Reader writes "So what’s all the fuss? Just install the security patches and you’re safe, right? Unfortunately, no. As IT professionals will attest, it can be extremely difficult to test and apply the necessary patches to every vulnerable computer within an enterprise before exploits become public. Compounding the matter, some patches can actually interfere with, or “break” existing software applications, adding to the time it takes to determine which patches can be applied and which need to be tested within a given organization’s network."
