Conclusion

Keeping up with the latest patches on all your systems is no small task, especially when you include embedded systems such as routers, firewalls, and switches. Such devices are critical to your network operations, so a safe and efficient way to ensure their security is a welcome addition to your vulnerability management program. Local patch checking is a great way to ensure that all of the systems and devices in your enterprise are running the latest software in a safe and efficient manner.
