Automated Patch Management for OS and Third Party Applications

Manage OS and third party application patching and updates from a single console for all your patching tools.

What is automated patch management?

Automating your patch management means that all OS and third party applications (e.g. Adobe, Chrome, and Slack) will be automatically updated and protected against known vulnerabilities. The process involves automating how devices are scanned, inventoried, and updated. The system should identify all applications and missing patches to then download the latest patch updates released by the application vendors.

Automating third party patching and management is especially important, as third party applications are responsible for over 75% of all endpoint vulnerabilities. Effective third party patching strategies give IT departments full visibility into all the software installed across their networks - including authorized and unauthorized applications - to allow for continuously patched, up-to-date endpoints.

Safeguard from shadow IT

Stop guessing with third party software.

Getting a complete inventory of third party software with detailed information like version number and patches available is a manual and time-consuming process for legacy technologies. Often overlooked despite its importance in endpoint hardening, gathering all the data necessary in one centralized tool can greatly reduce an organization's attack surface.

Automox inventories all hardware, software, patches, and configuration details and provides the information in a single, cloud-native console. Remediate patch vulnerabilities, deploy required software, and fix misconfigured systems within a single pane of glass without the need for multiple tools.

We have yet to find a piece of software that Automox has been unable to patch.

Stay in front of vulnerabilities - no matter where they are.

The difficulty of managing the software installed on corporate endpoints is compounded by the growing number of remote workers and off-site assets. These circumstances lead to a constantly changing attack surface for every organization.

By helping IT administrators maintain a full inventory of third party applications and corresponding patches from a single cloud-native console, Automox keeps IT teams ahead of attackers.

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

Deploy and maintain any software, anywhere

Deploy and uninstall any new third party software with ease

As corporate software needs change, deploying or uninstalling software at scale can be met with resistance due to time consumption, impact on users, and complexity. Difficult to manage remote devices and potential lack of confirmation of a successful installation or uninstallation complicates things further.

Having all my security status data centralized in one place makes my life a whole lot less stressful.
