Cyber Hygiene Automation & Policy Enforcement

Streamline IT operations by automating cyber hygiene tasks and defining policies that enforce system and software compliance across Windows, macOS and Linux systems, and dozens of commonly used third party software products.

What is automated cyber hygiene?

Automated cyber hygiene is the practice of updating Windows, Linux, and macOS operating systems or third-party applications, such as Adobe, Firefox, or Chrome - via an automated scanning and remediation tool like Automox. By performing these checks and updates daily, endpoints are continuously protected from risk exposure.

Defining policies to enforce compliance with the latest OS and third-party software updates and configuration controls improves operational efficiency, buying back time and providing confidence that all critical vulnerabilities have been patched across every endpoint.

Automated cyber hygiene & policy enforcement

Automated patching

Most IT Admins have no way to quickly know which software titles on which systems are out of date and vulnerable to exploits, having no tools to effectively provide this information.. Automox enables visibility into the status of your corporate endpoints and allows customization and automation of both OS and third-party applications on a continuous basis. to eliminate this threat vector.

Extensible configuration management

IT Admins can define and enforce configuration requirements for clients, servers, virtual machines, cloud instances and even containers . with both preset and customizable policies. Automox provides the flexibility you need to ensure your corporate endpoints stay up to date and compliant.

Policy enforcement and compliance

With policies, you can patch all devices at once, include/exclude certain groups of devices, or set up advanced rules for which OS type, or segment of endpoints are patched.. You also can use patch according to severity level to automate critical patches and limit cosmetic updates. Manual approval workflows also allow you to select exactly which software to patch, avoiding downtime and failures.

Patching is a thankless, redundant job that should be automated, which is why we chose Automox.
