Custom Patch Management Policies

Every aspect of Patch Management from the type of protection offered, including the scan schedule, remediation action (i.e. what to do when a Path is discovered as missing based on severity), alerting behavior is controlled via policies.

Default policies are available with the ability to setup custom policies (as well as edit the defaults) to precisely match both the company and client's protection requirements.

Custom policies are based on an existing policy and once created, choose edit to configure the new policy to match your precise requirements. Where a policy is no longer needed, and is not in use on any devices, it may be removed from the dialog.
