Patch Management as a Service.

Keep your systems secure, compliant, and running smoothly 24/7

Do you know your average time to patch?

Patching is critical to the productivity and security of every organisation, and for many, it's a legal obligation - if a business does not meet industry compliance standards, fines may be issued.

However, tracking security vulnerabilities, testing and deploying multiple patches, and reporting on outcomes all takes time. The average time to patch is between 50-160 days - this leaves a wide-open window for cybercriminals to exploit the vulnerability.

At The Missing Link, our Patch Management service ensures software bugs are identified early and fixed swiftly to help keep your systems performing at optimal capacity and reduce your risks of cyber attack. We handle the whole patch management process from assessing your patch status, to implementing an automated patch management solution and helping you develop a more mature vulnerability management policy.

Our experts in Patch Management will work with you to scope out an accurate picture of all your IT assets (including applications) and the vulnerabilities associated with each. 

Once we've completed a vulnerability assessment, we'll prioritise vulnerabilities to identify critical patches that need to be deployed. Our patching process will reduce your risks by effectively remediating the issues with a strategic Patch Management policy.

We will maintain a keen eye on software solutions across your IT environment - including your operating system, endpoint and applications to ensure security upgrades are effectively implemented, patch compliance is maintained, and errors are fixed promptly. We'll also proactively implement managed upgrades so you can be sure your team is operating with maximum efficiency and security, whether they're working in your office or from remote locations.

Importantly, if a patch installation fails to install we'll have a backup plan ready to implement that keeps your systems running and protects your people, processes and devices from danger.
