Application Patch Management: Automated monitoring of application updates and vulnerabilities with Apptimized Updates

Is it hard keeping your software up to date in the right way? How much time does it take to track application updates? How often do software vulnerabilities remain undiscovered, and the related patches are deployed late or not at all? Missed out on time-critical feature updates, letting down your users? Ever felt squeezed by the pressures of regulatory compliance and security threats? Nervous because of security audits? Annoyed by slow IT processes?  What impact does the application updating have on your software estate?   

Without a doubt, patch management is not an easy task. But, at the same time, no one can deny the need for this procedure and its importance for companies across all industries. Why? Well, if you don’t keep your applications current, you expose your users, your company and ultimately yourself to high cyber security risks. Your users’ productivity might be impacted by missing features, old data or incompatibilities with your infrastructure.  

How to stay notified about application updates? 

Apptimized Updates is a solution that provides you with a flexible and automated notification system. Updates informs users when the software vendor has released an application update or found vulnerabilities. We monitor over 250 of the most widely used products, adding new ones all the time, so you are free from manual and tedious work that consumes time and effort.  

How to get Apptimized update notifications? 

By purchasing a subscription that allows you to get update notifications, and to choose which applications you want to monitor and view they’re current version status. Also, the subscription enables you to download vendor media in a few clicks directly from your portfolio. 

Key benefits of Application Patch Management with Apptimized Updates:

  • Access to the original vendor’s media. You can download the media and process it within or outside of Apptimized. 
  • Adjust settings for  updates. Monitor only applications you need, reducing unnecessary information and aligning with changing requirements. 

Updates helps companies to focus on key issues, enhancing the business processes‘ productivity and sustainability.
