Patch Management

Streamline Patch Management for NERC CIP Compliance

Patch Management is a big challenge for BES Cyber entities.  Registered entities are required to put in place the ability to track, evaluate, and install cyber security patches for applicable Cyber Assets.  At a minimum, every 35 calendar days the entities must evaluate security patches for applicability and then take action.  Without a commercial application to manage the patch availability, validation, testing and tracking can be extremely labor intensive and error-prone.
