Whether from hackers, viruses or ordinary bugs, your software and operating systems are vulnerable to security and performance threats. Keeping up with the constant stream of patches is an ongoing drain on your IT staff as they research, evaluate, test and apply patches across your enterprise. Failing to keep up with the pace puts your whole network at risk.
Complete patch management
LANDesk Patch Manager is a subscription service that automates vulnerability assessment and patch management across heterogeneous IT environments. It helps you establish and maintain baseline security, stability and performance for your applications and operating systems. When you need to take control and implement efficient patch management, you can with LANDesk Patch Manager.
Efficiency increases productivity
LANDesk Patch Manager lets you actively scan your managed computers to identify application and operating system vulnerabilities against industry-standard information sources. You define your own custom vulnerabilities to support your individual application, policy or security needs. You can view assessment results directly in the console. You can also filter by platform and sort by vulnerability, application or individual computer to help develop a remediation plan. And patches can be stored on the local network so they're readily available to speed distribution. With LANDesk Patch Manager you can quickly identify and download the patch associated with each vulnerability.
Efficiency increases control
LANDesk Patch Manager delivers versatile, efficient patch remediation. It lets you quickly schedule distribution tasks to apply patches to individual computers, computers' roles or groups of computers by integrating with your existing directory, such as active directory. You can establish policies that install specific patches for specific operating systems automatically. And you can download and install new patches as they become available with auto fix remediation. You can easily report on remediation efforts, including which computers required a specific patch, which ones are already patched and those that required manual remediation. You can also quickly identify computers that couldn't be updated in order to address special needs or requirements and report both success and ongoing remediation needs.
Using LANDesk Patch Manager, you gain the advantage of exclusive LANDesk software distribution technologies. LANDesk Targeted Multicast technology minimizes bandwidth used when distributing large packages to multiple users - without requiring dedicated hardware or router reconfigurations. LANDesk Peer Download technology leverages local bandwidth efficiency to access packages that were already delivered to a subnet. LANDesk Patch Manager lets you use these technologies to easily pre-stage patches to each local system cache and then quickly roll them out once approved by your change control board.
Rest assuredProduct Highlights
LANDesk Patch Manager lets you set up email or pager alerts when vulnerability or a specific severity level is detected. It also monitors the status of each install and displays the status on screen, so you can quickly and easily track remediation and ensure that each patch reached its target. When remediation is complete, you can audit each target machine to ensure correct configuration and report successful remediation. Rest assured and patches can be installed quickly and automatically, freeing you to focus on those machines that really need your time.
