The Benefits of our Co-managed Patch Management services

At Gather, we treat your technology as if it were our own. Our team of IT experts go above and beyond, every single time. We understand the pressures IT managers are facing and we are here to make your life easier. Our co-managed patch management offers several benefits for IT managers, enhancing their ability to maintain system security and stability while streamlining operational processes. Here are five key advantages of co-managed patch management:

Enhanced Security Posture: Co-managed patch management enables IT managers to collaborate with external vendors or service providers to ensure timely deployment of security patches. By leveraging the expertise of these partners, IT managers can stay ahead of emerging threats and vulnerabilities, reducing the risk of cyberattacks and data breaches.

Improved Compliance: Many industries are subject to regulatory requirements mandating regular software updates and patch management. Co-managed patch management helps IT managers meet these compliance standards more efficiently by offloading some of the workload to specialised service providers who understand the nuances of regulatory frameworks. This reduces the risk of non-compliance penalties and audits.

Optimised Resource Allocation: By partnering with external experts for patch management tasks, IT managers can free up internal resources to focus on strategic initiatives and core business objectives. Co-managed patch management allows IT teams to allocate their time and efforts more effectively, maximising productivity and minimising downtime associated with patching activities.

Access to Specialised Expertise: Co-managed patch management services often involve collaboration with vendors or third-party providers who possess specialised knowledge and experience in software updates and security patches. IT managers can leverage this expertise to address complex patching challenges, resolve issues more quickly, and implement best practices for maintaining system integrity and reliability.

Scalability and Flexibility: As businesses grow and technology environments evolve, the demands for patch management can fluctuate. Co-managed solutions offer scalability and flexibility, allowing IT managers to adjust resources and support levels according to changing requirements. Whether scaling up during peak periods or scaling down during quieter times, co-managed patch management provides the agility needed to adapt to dynamic business conditions effectively.
