Patch management is considered by many to be one of the more vital functions provided by the IT or Security Operations team. That’s especially true nowadays when there are so many threats from hackers, and so many bugs found in systems after they’ve gone into production. Software patching is critical for preventing data breaches, server crashes, and lots of other bad outcomes from various vulnerabilities.
There are many options for you to choose from when considering a patch management solution. What's not as well addressed are the equally important activities adjacent to the application of a software patch. An automation platform like Ayehu NG can streamline these tasks, dramatically improving the overall patch management process.
This webinar shows you an example of that, and the kind of workflow you can build with Ayehu NG to ensure thoroughness in your patch management process, as well as compliance with organizational standards. We see this as a critically overlooked aspect of many organizations’ lifecycle management strategy.
On this webinar you'll learn how to automate:
• Pre-patch checks - including such things as identifying dependencies, testing patches out on a test environment before applying them to a production system, reading the release notes, etc.
• Post-patch checks - including such things as rebooting machines that require it, performing a smoke test to ensure everything that worked correctly before the patch was applied still does, and executing rollbacks wherever problems are uncovered.
