GFI Software has added a patch management capability to its GFI Cloud offering.
Delivered via an enhanced, web-based user interface, the company said that businesses will be able to automate the process of patching all of their machines and it can be bought and used on its own to complement other anti-virus, monitoring or asset tracking products a company may have.
Using the GFI Cloud, this will help IT administrators to automatically manage patches from Microsoft and third parties can be managed from the solution's single, intuitive dashboard.
Walter Scott, CEO of GFI Software, said: “GFI Cloud is our flagship solution for resource-strapped IT administrators at small and mid-sized companies to easily and efficiently manage the needs of their entire IT environment.
“The IT marketplace is shifting towards cloud-based solutions, and the benefits to them are already well-documented. GFI now extends the power and capabilities of our enterprise-class, award-winning business and security solutions to a single platform where all of these capabilities can be easily accessed and managed in one place by even the smallest IT teams.
“Patch management is the logical next step in the evolution of making GFI Cloud the only IT software platform a small or mid-sized business will need to manage the IT resources needed to support and protect their business.”
