Patch Management Module for Retina CS

It’s more than a Microsoft world when it comes to commonly deployed applications on your network. Remediate those applications as part of your overall vulnerability management strategy with the integrated Patch Management Module for Retina CS.

Remediation Support for Your Business Applications

The vast majority of attacks, even in today’s sophisticated threat landscape, target known vulnerabilities – that is to say, vulnerabilities that have a fix available for them. Effective patch management can go a long way in helping reduce your network's overall attack surface, but to be truly effective, requires prioritization, in addition to broad coverage for business applications.

Seamlessly integrated with our Retina CS solution, BeyondTrust’s Patch Management Module closes the loop on vulnerabilities by providing seamless patching for Microsoft and third-party applications. Integrated, automated, and agent-less, the solution improves the efficiency and effectiveness of patch processes. Your IT Security team can quickly fix weaknesses using instant or scheduled patching, and see the big picture with end-to-end reporting on the entire patch management cycle.
