Patch management is about applying the latest updates and system maintenance to your technology including operating systems, firmware or systems software.
Applying routine maintenance and updates regularly will help to ensure that systems can take advantage of the latest fixes and features as well as mitigating security risk with the latest updates to potential vulnerabilities. This will protect the confidentiality of your data and the integrity of your systems.
