Automated Patch Management
by Rick Greenwood - CTO of Shavlik Technologies - Friday, 28 April 2006.
Risk reduction protects against qualitative losses to reputation, legal action and competition. Such benefits can be even more significant to an organization than the baseline time and costs savings achieved through improvements to the overall patch management process. Although lost productivity of end-users is quantifiable, it’s usually not something that can be recovered directly. Giving employees, contractors and business partners the ability to conduct business without disruption can be a significant benefit to companies.

Ensuring network security through automated patch management is no simple task. It requires diligence to stay informed and secure. However, companies that understand risk and proactive security will find that the investments made in an automated patch management process far outweigh the costs.
