Protect yourself and your customers from security vulnerabilities that could open the door to outages or cyberattack. By Drew Sanford

4. Utilize patching resources

Windows 10 updates on an “as needed” basis so teams are alerted the moment a patch is released and ready to be downloaded. For other programs, MSPs can use a multitude of resources to stay up to date on patch rollout. These include SearchSecurity Patch News, Oracle’s Critical Patch Updates and Security Alerts, and Patch My PC.

By documenting all patch policies and processes as well as incorporating them into standard operating procedures, MSPs can better protect clients from cyberattacks due to unpatched vulnerabilities.
