Patch Operating Systems
Patching Operating Systems is one of the Australian Cyber Security Centres (ACSC) recommended Essential 8 strategies used to prevent cyber-attacks and limit the extent of damage caused by incidents. Similarly to Patching Applications, regular and proactive patching of business operating systems is vital to ensure any system vulnerabilities are fixed; thus, protecting the business from malicious codes (malware) entering the network.
Patching can be undertaken automatically across all supported Windows operating systems as part of all our Cybersecurity Management System (CSMS) packages. Along with Patching Applications, Patching Operating Systems forms a strong first point of defense against potential threats. In addition to prevention, Patching Operating Systems can also minimise the extent of damage in the case of a security breach.
