Linux Patch Management is the process of detecting, downloading, testing, approving and installing new/missing patches for Linux computers within a network. It entails having a centralized view on the applicable Linux patches for endpoints across a network, so that Vulnerable, Highly Vulnerable and Healthy Systems can be classified at a glance, and appropriate measures can be taken to keep the network safe from cyberattacks.
Updates for Linux, include fixes to security loopholes, better hardware compatibility, improved stability, and occasionally major updates thereby improving the user experience overall. If you do not update your Linux, you can miss out on all of these new features and improvements.
