Mac Patch Management is the process of updating macOS and Mac applications periodically to ensure that everything is up-to-date and secure.
Mac Patch Management Software is a tool that allows you to automate the entire patch management lifecycle for Mac devices and applications. Mac patch management software not only installs applicable patches, but also scans for network vulnerabilities, identifies missing security patches and hotfixes, applies them immediately and mitigates risk. It also provides detailed information about missing Mac patches in a network and deploys hotfixes/patches that are released periodically.
