So, what do we mean by Patching & Firmware?

Frequently asked questions

Patch management involves updating software, drivers, and firmware to protect against vulnerabilities and ensure optimal system performance, boosting productivity.


All systems need to be secured, from employee laptops to unattended devices like kiosks and digital signage. Ignoring patch management can expose your business to data breaches, productivity loss, and reputational damage.

  • Comprehensive Patch Management – Patch management goes beyond updating the OS and applications. It includes updating hardware firmware and drivers.


  • Regular Patch Cycles – Establish predictable patch management cycles that allow users to prepare for updates and minimise disruptions.


  • Batch Patching – Also known as "soft launch" or "sandbox testing," this involves deploying patches to a small user segment (around 5%) to evaluate effects before a full-scale rollout.

The primary goal of patch management is to protect endpoints from malicious attackers and maintain system performance. Additional benefits include:


  • Increased Productivity – Up-to-date software operates more efficiently, boosting your employee's productivity.


  • Reduced Costs – Remote management by a third party reduces the need for costly hardware or on-site repairs.


  • Regulatory Compliance – Helps meet data protection regulations like HIPAA and GDPR.
