Patch Management

Patching doesn't have to be a full-time job. FSU's patch management service makes patching easier, more efficient and more secure. This centralized, automated service ensures both vendor-supplied and third-party security updates are installed quickly and reliably. Patch management covers both Microsoft and Apple operating systems and hundreds of popular academic software, apps and web browsers. That means no more manually installing updates, no more annoying pop-up notifications, and way more time to focus on core business goals.

  • 100s of apps | patches available for extensive catalog of hundreds of third-party apps
  • Proven patches | trusted, pre-tested patches with accompanying metadata
  • Automatic installs | patches install automatically with no disruption to users
  • Reduced vulnerabilities | reduces number of vulnerabilities found in Nexpose scans
  • Planned updates | regularly scheduled updates for Microsoft and Apple operating systems, powered by Ivanti Patch for SCCM (PC) and Munki (Mac)
