How We Chose the Best Patch Management Software
We've put together a shortlist of the best patch management software for 2021 based on the following three criteria.
Patch Management Features
The core feature list is one of the most important elements we checked for in determining the best patch management software. We chose software that has the most relevant and required functions, such as automation, scheduled events, monitoring and external scripts. This category also includes vulnerability scanning and other features that aren't specific to patch management.
The ideal solution for any individual business is one that integrates well with existing systems. This can range from very general integrations, such as Windows updates, to software, codecs, drivers, and other content. Businesses with custom software and other specific requirements may need to take extra care in the integration stage.
Simple, clean dashboards and in-depth reporting are both equally important features we used to evaluate the best patch management software. With the right tools, the IT department can see at a glance whether the latest updates and security patches have been deployed and to what extent. High-quality reports and ongoing monitoring are essential to any business attempting to streamline and automate systems.
