"How great would it be if your IT support company did this for you and were able to provide you with a report showing the patch health of your systems? That would be a much better way than simply relying on your team to do this by themselves. m3 Networks weekly patch management is included as part of our IT support package, so all of our customers never have to worry about software updates.
