LIVE WEBINAR               DURATION: 60 minutes               DATE & TIME: July 26, 2017, 9:00 am MST | 11:00 am EST | 4:00 pm GMT







Today’s patch process is evolving in many ways. Patch technology is changing, and Security and IT Operations are converging.


In this webinar, we’ll start by diving into the initial patch planning process, taking a look at the systems to consider, the people you need to work with, and of course the patches that are available. We’ll move on to setting up your patch system to access the content and patches you need to make this all work. Configuring your patch system to work with your business operations is the key to success, and we’ll show you how to make that happen.


And, finally, we’ll wrap up with some of the latest patch trends we are seeing and how we are adapting our products so you can ‘ride the wave’ of added value.


Key topics to be explored include:

  • Planning to patch (what do I need to know)
  • Vendor patch models (Windows as a service)
  • Setting up a patch system (how do patches work)
  • Customizing for your environment (supporting business operations)
  • Patch operations (smooth running, repeatable process)
  • Latest trends (APIs and vulnerability scans)


Everything you need to Patch the OS, VMware, and Third-Party Applications
