Patch Management is undoubtedly one of the critical tasks for any IT admin. But, that task is one amongst a million tasks which IT admins should focus on. Patch management activity can take up-to hours and days, which results in meager output when it comes to managing endpoints on the whole. Automating your patch deployments helps you save the manual load invested and also let's you streamline the process. With all the planning done manually, IT admins can automate the deployment of patches thereby achieving better results in a shorter span of time.
IT admins can leverage the below listed benefits when patch deployment is automated:
Configure Patch Database Settings to specify the time interval for the Endpoint Central server to synchronize with the database and collect details of the latest patches available.
After synchronization with the Patch Database, Endpoint Central server will collect details of the latest patches released. In the next refresh policy, Endpoint Central agents will automatically scan the computers to check if the newly available patches are missing. With Automate Patch Deployment, these patches will automatically be deployed without any delay. Automate Patch Deployment task ensures all the computers in the network are fully patched.
