What is Linux Patch Management?

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.
