PatchSafe Additional Details


PatchSafe is a comprehensive software update service that will improve security, improve usability and reduce support costs.

Vantage’s staff carefully select software updates prior to inclusion into PatchSafe. Manufacturers have been known to release updates that have subsequently caused problems and Vantage IT takes care before including updates to reduce the risk of such an event occurring.
 
Rather than each PC download the updates it needs from the PatchSafe servers and thus severely impact the internet for all users, copies of the updates are held locally on your systems. This not only protects internet bandwidth, but it improves speed of deployment too.
 
To further minimise impact, the updates are downloaded overnight where possible, rather than during the day, so that users are not inconvenienced.
 
As the time between a vulnerability being discovered and malicious software capable of exploiting it diminishes, the race to keep PCs protected is ever more difficult. With Vantage PatchSafe we are able to rapidly deploy updates, resulting in much faster protection for your PCs.
 
When users require additional applications to be deployed by PatchSafe, these are checked to ensure their compatibility before adding to the service.
