Patch Auditing

Take Patch Auditing to a New Level

For the first time, a single solution integrates patch scanning with patch management system information.

Available both to Nessus® and SecurityCenter™ customers, this new capability eliminates the time-consuming manual comparisons needed to resolve discrepancies and fill information gaps between network security and IT operations teams on the patch status of IT assets.

SecurityCenter extends patch analyses to cover unmanaged mobile devices. It gleans patch insight from network traffic and analyzes historical information to identify deteriorating trends, including ineffective or inefficient patch processes covering critical assets.
