Are your systems up-to-date and secure? Impero Patch, an add-on module available with Impero Education Pro, provides patch management software features designed to strengthen endpoint security and protect the top education software applications.
Many software updates are communicated through pop-up windows. Imagine if these patches and updates were performed by students or staff members – how would IT teams maintain visibility of installed patches and ensure that any updates don’t cause compatibility or instability issues? Outdated software can cause network vulnerability, potentially increasing the risk of security breaches as well as disruptive downtime. And when left to a manual process, the installation of patches can often be overlooked, leaving vulnerabilities wide open.
The Impero Patch module uses automated detection to patch Microsoft and more than 60 third-party applications (including Flash and Java) before vulnerabilities are exposed to the school network. Scheduling updates to perform automatic patching prevents the risk of security breaches and potential downtime, while saving valuable staff hours.
Schedule patching for specific devices using a variety of criteria, including time and date, using active directory or by manual group creation.
Wake-on-LAN scheduled patching can be set to power on devices, apply patches and then shutdown machines once complete.
Configure installation schedules to determine which products will be patched by the system and when updates will be applied.
Create customized policies for automated patching to ensure systems are kept updated and protected, while saving time for IT teams.
intuitive dashboard interface
Provides a centralized overview of the network’s current patching state, with access to key information such as the most popular missing patches grouped by severity.
Generate reports prior, during, and after the patching process (and by date, time, machine, details or log type) to reveal events or errors and to prove endpoint security.
Reduce exposure to vulnerabilities through the wake-on-LAN service, which can be used to automatically power-on devices, apply patches, and shutdown once patching is complete.
Automated scanning and scheduling of missing patches, and the ability to easily create policies, removes the hassle of manual processes and reduces admin workload.
Reduce disruptive downtime by scheduling automated patching overnight or during non-peak times and by ensuring network devices are kept protected and up-to-date.
strengthen endpoint security
Maximize endpoint security to keep systems updated, free from vulnerabilities and prevent the risk of viruses.
Automatically scan the network for outdated or vulnerable software to avoid the risk of overlooking update notifications or patching incorrect versions.
Scheduling automatic updates to keep systems updated improves working processes and helps to streamline networks.
