Patch Management


Mphasis Server Patching

Servers and PCs that are not up to date on patches are potential vulnerabilities to organizations. Security vulnerabilities are independent of operating systems. Servers operating “open source software is normally at a risk longer than comparable Windows-based systems.The process of patch management needs to be addressed holistically. This poses a challenge to organizations as patches are not released in any pre-planned process. As a result, basis the number of servers, it can load the IT staff of organizations throwing all plans awry.

Patch management needs:

  • Resources with a wide variety of skill sets across heterogeneous environments.
  • Patch implementation process can be either ad-hoc or on demand – either way it presents peaks & troughs in terms of work volumes, which needs to be managed.
  • Business service availability: As an enabler of business, it is essential to track performance, integrity and business activity on the IT infrastructure. MOATIS facilitates this.
