Keeping Windows and your applications up to date is a vital element of cybersecurity, as it minimizes the time your systems are vulnerable to the latest exploits.
Many top applications can handle their own updates, but managing this can be complicated. You might need to allow multiple ‘update’ tools to run permanently in the background, for instance, each of which has to be set up and maintained separately.
Avast Business Patch Management replaces your current collection of individual updaters with a single straightforward platform, delivered as an add-on to any of Avast’s managed antivirus products (Antivirus, Antivirus Pro, Antivirus Pro Plus).
The service can check thousands of supported applications for updates, from 100 top vendors: Adobe, Autodesk, Citrix, Google, Microsoft (Windows and applications), Mozilla, TeamViewer, VMware and more (a PDF of the full application list is here).

You’re able to set up precise rules to define how the update process works, right across your network. You can have Avast Business Patch Management scan for missing patches on all devices at the time and frequency of your choice. Patches may then be deployed when it’s appropriate for the business.
You can further minimize update hassles by only installing the most important patches. Or you might tell the system to ignore some applications entirely, if that works for you, and manage them in some other way.
If you’re running a large network, the real benefit of Avast Business Patch Management could be the reports in its management console. In a click or two, you can view summary stats, highlight missing patches, drill down to installation failures, and more.
Unlike some of the enterprise competition, Avast doesn’t demand thousands of pounds for the service, or ask you to contact it for
