Action1 Starts Continuous Patch Compliance with Automated Security Vulnerabilities

Enterprise Security Magazine | Tuesday, January 10, 2023

IT teams now have complete visibility and control over patching status with the new version, which enables them to set up consistent patching strategies once and never have to think about them again.

FREMONT, CA: “Work-from-anywhere reality makes patching especially labor-intensive and causes IT teams to work overtime double-checking if all updates are deployed successfully; Otherwise, missing updates can let threat actors exploit security vulnerabilities, leading to data breaches and costly compliance fines," says Alex Vovk, CEO and co-founder of Action1. Action1 Corporation, one of the leading providers of a cloud-native patch management platform for organizations with remote workers, has developed a new version of its solution. Updated Action1 enables internal IT departments and managed service providers (MSPs) to patch and remediate security vulnerabilities across endpoints and monitor real-time patching results. By ensuring continuous patch compliance, the new version enables organizations to mitigate security and noncompliance issues in response to increasing cyber threats.

“With this upgrade, we provide IT teams with intelligent automation capabilities, empowering them to eliminate manual work while ensuring a 99 percent success rate for patch deployment and improving cybersecurity for their organizations,” adds Vovk.

Action1 is the most popular cloud-native patch management platform for remote workers. Action1 automates the patching of third-party software and operating systems across dispersed IT environments without VPN, ensuring continuous compliance and the remediation of security vulnerabilities before their exploitation. The first 100 endpoints are free forever, including secure remote access and RMM. Alex Vovk and Mike Walters, cybersecurity veterans who previously founded Netwrix, which TA Associates acquired, founded the company.

The new features include—granular update policies and a patch compliance dashboard.

IT teams can now implement a comprehensive patching strategy within their managed endpoints by customizing OS and third-party update deployments according to the organization's needs, as well as developing automated patching policies for consistent patching without human intervention, based on update sources, types, names, vendor wildcards, and security severity.

IT teams have complete visibility into the organization's patching status. Through the overview, they can see pending critical updates, update approvals, required reboots, and drill down for more information.

The updated version is accessible at action1.com. The first 100 endpoints are complimentary.
