Patch management is the process of selecting, acquiring, and installing patches and updates on large-scale networks of computers.
Patch management is essential to maintain complex systems and prevent a mistake, bug, or vulnerability from interrupting your day-to-day operations.
An effective patch management process can help reduce endpoint security vulnerabilities, maintain regulatory compliance, and enhance performance.
You can develop a patch management process through careful planning. Consider incorporating patch management using the following steps:
Assess cybersecurity and patching needs
Identify unique network components and configurations
Consider special departmental and user needs
Weigh acceptable risks
Determine asset management approaches
Develop processes for testing updates before widespread distribution
Establish patch deployment timeframes
Implement policies for handling uncommon situations (e.g. distributing out-of-band patches)
Three key points to ensure patch management best practices are:
Inventorying your systems and assessing risk levels
Creating policies for installing and testing updates
Remaining flexible and transparent
