If your business uses a network of computers, keeping all of those computers updated with the latest antivirus software is important. Without the latest antivirus software, a virus could damage your network. Damage to your network could result in your important data being lost. Recovering from data loss can take time, and businesses lose money as they fall behind on projects after a virus infiltrates their system. Worst of all, some data simply cannot be replaced or restored once it is lost. But with patch management software, you can make sure that every computer on your business’s network is updated with the latest antivirus software to prevent a virus from ever damaging or wiping out your business’s valuable information.
Patch management software allows your business to have a network of optimized computers with ease. Updating and administering hundreds, or even thousands, of computers is much easier with patch management software because patch management gives you access to every single computer on your network from one centralized computer. From one central computer, you can install software updates to all of the other computers simultaneously. Without patch management software, updating all of the computers on your network with the latest antivirus software would be a painstaking task that would require days of work. Since all of your computers are updated simultaneously with patch management, you can rest assured that every computer on your network is protected from viruses.
Patch management software also allows business to install other kinds of software and firmware updates. In fact, you can install any program that you deem necessary using patch management software. When you use patch management software to install software, the programs can be installed on every computer on your network simultaneously, just as you can when you install antivirus updates with patch management software.
