Eliminating Patch Management Double-Vision

Shavlik Technologies

This white paper will look at how organizations have typically handled the onslaught of virtual machines introduced into their environment, how and where they have missed the mark in terms of managing to keep them up-to-date, and why it is critical to put a formal patch management plan in place which incorporates a single set of processes and tools to help keep both the physical and virtual environments up and running with the latest patches. In short, it shouldn't matter that the machines are virtual; all IT systems should be managed together in the same fashion, with the same objectives.
