Patching

Patch Management 

Expert oversight to ensure your critical assets
remain operational

Security, oversight and optimal performance

Our fully-managed service ensures systems and applications are kept up to date. When critical systems become outdated, vulnerabilities can be exploited by a cyber-security attack. The result of such an attack is extended downtime, data loss and even being exposed to paying a ransom

Our expert team complete the patching process from beginning to end, including testing to ensure seamless deployment.

Patch Partnership

Up-to-date systems means peace of mind. Astec can help ensure your operation stays online and protected against wide ranging threats from operational inefficiency and cyber-security vulnerability to inappropriately applied patches.

The Patch Management service offered by Astec is provided by a team of experts and is tailored to your needs with flexible options in service level and frequency. Regular reviews of available patches and comparisons with production systems enable our team to determine which should be applied and when deployment is appropriate.

When critical patches become available, especially with respect to security vulnerabilities, our team will review, test and deploy to ensure proper protections and functionality for your critical systems.

A patching partnership covers every element of keeping your software up to date
