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. The centralized, automated service ensures both vendor-supplied and third-party security updates are installed quickly and reliably for Microsoft and Apple operating systems and hundreds of popular academic software, apps and web browsers, such as Adobe, Firefox, Java and Chrome. That means no more manually installing updates, no more annoying pop-up notifications, and way more time to focus on core business goals.
