Close security holes and keep IT systems up-to-date with G DATA Patch Management
On 25 May 2018, the EU General Data Protection Regulation enters into force in order to strengthen and unify data in Europe. This also includes securing the IT infrastructure against cyber attacks in order to prevent data theft. Installing software updates is an important factor in closing security holes that are otherwise open to attackers. G DATA Patch Management helps administrators meet their obligations, and allows the patches deployed to be rolled out either immediately or progressively on the network. Combined with G DATA's powerful antivirus solutions, this provides IT systems with comprehensive protection against data theft, giving companies a valuable helping hand in complying with the EU General Data Protection Regulation.
The new regulations affect all companies that collect and process personal data, through their customer databases for example. Companies must ensure comprehensive protection of all important sectors, by implementing "state of the art" technologies, or otherwise face stiff financial sanctions. Companies that use software that is outdated or not up-to-date, laying them open to cyber attacks, run the risk of being fined for data breaches. The drawing up of mandatory compliance rules, which define the handling of the sensitive information, is one of the key steps. Another important component is ensuring the comprehensive protection of IT systems against data leakages and cyberattacks. This is where solutions containing a patch management system come into play. They allow updates from software vendors to be installed immediately on the network.
A patch management solution is an effective way of coping with the plethora of program updates. G DATA Patch Management is an add-on module to the network solutions of the IT security manufacturer that supports administrators in the efficient distribution of software patches.
