Patch management is the installation of “patches” from a software vendor onto a computer designed to fix problems or update a computers program. Patches can be used to fix security vulnerabilities and improve the computer’s performance.
Patches can sometimes be mandatory for programs in frequent use, in need of constant update or in need of maintenance to keep your computer running properly.
Security patches are used to correct a weakness in your computers security system. These are the most frequently used method of correcting computer vulnerability. New security patches are constantly being updated and should be installed on your computer to prevent virus contamination. Microsoft, for example releases a new security patch as often as once a month.
