Chapter 11. Designing Software Update Infrastructure and Managing Compliance

Chapter 11. Designing Software Update Infrastructure and Managing Compliance

When considering the importance of a good software update infrastructure, remember that the most famous worms and viruses have usually used weaknesses for which software updates had already been released. The simple fact is that if you apply newly released software updates to the computers in your organization in a timely manner, your organization will be less vulnerable to worms, viruses, trojans, and bugs than organizations that take a more haphazard approach to update management. In this chapter, you will learn about several software update solutions that you can deploy in your enterprise environment to ensure that all the computers you are responsible for managing have software that is up to date. You will also learn how to generate and apply baseline security policies, a method of ensuring that the configuration of the computers in your organization is as secure as possible while still performing its assigned functions.
