Patch management is a critical aspect of IT operations for organizations of all sizes. It is the process of identifying, testing, and deploying software updates and security patches to keep systems and applications up to date and secure. With the increasing threat of cyber attacks and data breaches, it's more important than ever for organizations to have a robust patch management strategy in place.
