GFI Software today announced that it has added patch management capabilities to cloud-based platform for the delivery of services via a newly-enhanced, web-based user interface. By adding patch management to the platform, SMBs will now be able to automate the process of patching all of their machines, thus keeping their systems up-to-date and using the latest versions of the software they work with.
GFI’s patch management functionality can be purchased and used on its own to complement other antivirus, monitoring or asset tracking products a company may have, but the patch management feature really comes into its own as part of GFI Cloud. With antivirus, server and workstation monitoring and now patch management, GFI Cloud gives IT admins one place to easily see the status and health of all their proactively-managed IT systems, to provide an inventory of hardware and software on, and off, the network and, with TeamViewer installed, a quick and easy way to remotely access a problem device. The platform empowers IT departments to manage their IT systems more easily and efficiently, freeing up time and resources so they can focus on other critical tasks.
“GFI Cloud is our flagship solution for resource-strapped IT administrators at small and mid-sized companies to easily and efficiently manage the needs of their entire IT environment,” said Walter Scott, CEO, GFI Software.
Scott added that because “the IT marketplace is shifting toward cloud-based solutions, and the benefits to them are already well-documented, GFI now extends the power and capabilities” of enterprise-class, business and security solutions to a single platform where all of these capabilities can be easily accessed and managed in one place by even the smallest IT teams.
The latest evolution of GFI Cloud helps IT admins to automatically manage all of their patching needs from the solution’s single, intuitive dashboard. All updates – including those from Microsoft® (including Windows, Exchange, Office, Internet Explorer) and third-party applications (like Adobe, Java™, popular internet browsers and non-security updates) – can be managed with GFI Cloud, eliminating the need for any other update tools.
