KACE patching is a process of applying software updates to systems in order to fix known vulnerabilities. This can be done manually or through a patch management solution like KACE.
KACE patching generally follows a schedule of releasing new patches on the second Tuesday of every month, known as Patch Tuesday. However, sometimes urgent security issues will necessitate the release of an out-of-band patch.
KACE offers a number of different options for patching, depending on the customer's needs. These include:
- Automated patching: KACE can be configured to automatically download and install patches as they become available.
- Scheduled patching: KACE can be configured to install patches at a specific time or interval.
- Manual patching: Customers can manually select which patches to install on their systems.
KACE also offers a reporting feature that can be used to track which systems have been patched and which ones have not. This can be helpful in ensuring that all systems are kept up-to-date.
