Third Party Patching

by | 8th August 2022

The Challenge:  

Third Party Apps may be the weakest link in your company’s security. 

Your devices will run plenty of Third Party Apps – if you look at your programs installed you’ll see Adobe Reader, Java, Google Chrome to name a few. 

With so many different third-party apps on your system from browsers to editing software, how secure are they and how often are they updated?   

Cyber Criminals are becoming cleverer, looking to exploit any weaknesses they can find.   

Once they discover general weaknesses on each third-party app, they will look to exploit these across multiple users at multiple companies.

The Solution:  

In Remote working: The importance of cybersecurity, we explained the benefits of third-party patching (TPP) automatically updating common third-party applications. This ensures you have always got the latest, most secure software.    

A lightweight agent is installed on your endpoint which monitors third-party apps in real time.

Deploying agent-based security provides security scanning and reporting, system restarts and reboots, software patches, configuration changes and general system monitoring with your central system pulling data on demand, keeping your network up to date and secure.   

The Outcome:  

Your devices run the latest third-party patches, keeping them secure & protected from zero-day threats.
