A security patch is defined as an operating system or software patch that rectifies security issues such as viral infections, hacking incidents, and other vulnerabilities. Implementing and managing security patches are among the many services Wazitech offers, with the management process being both circular and ongoing.
We use the following patch management methodology:
The first step is to use tools that scan your system for missing security patches. We highly recommend making detection an automated option that alerts your patch management process of when to begin work.
Determining the severity of security issues outlined by the patch and related actions is the next step, if needed updates are not already implemented. Reviewing the security threat in conjunction with mitigation factors allows us to determine whether various vulnerabilities are a real threat.
Acquiring and downloading a patch for testing is necessary if the vulnerability is not resolved by current security options.
Patch installation on a test system is required to determine how the update will affect your current production configuration.
Once the patch is tested and determined to be viable, we will deploy it on production computers. We’ll also make certain the patch doesn’t affect your applications and will add a backup restore or rollback plan if necessary.
The final step involves having your managers subscribe to notifications alerting you to vulnerabilities as soon as they occur.
Selecting us for patch management offers a number of benefits, including:
- Fast, Accurate Deployment: We deploy patches that have undergone meticulous testing and approval. Patches are set up quickly and used only on machines that need them.
- Scheduled Remediation: Our team will help you schedule configuration and patch deployments that target specific domains and devices to greatly improve remediation activities.
- Network-Wide Configuration Management: We’ll maintain all network devices in regard to corporate standards and address all registry and user settings for total configuration management.

Security patches are an essential component of layered security efforts, which consist of a variety of measures working together to provide IT systems with the protection they need. It’s our job to help you avoid costly downtime, whether from a particularly malicious virus, unauthorized user, internal error, or something else.
