HomeSecurity SolutionsPATCH MANAGEMENT


Industrial control systems (ICS) in critical infrastructure are high-risk targets for attack and exploitation. Consistently monitored patches & updates can help resolve security vulnerabilities, functional issues and meet regulatory compliance requirements.


NERC CIP compliance regulations state that registered entities are required to have a patch management process for tracking, evaluating and installing cyber security patches for their identified cyber assets of applicable systems.


Patch management can be time consuming and very labor intensive. Utilities can spend over $500,000 per year manually searching websites, receiving vendor notifications, calling vendors and tracking patches.


Not all patches can be implemented without having catastrophic effects in a CIKR environment. Training internal teams to have the depth of knowledge necessary for validating and deployment is cumbersome and time consuming. Keeping staff current on the changing compliance regulations can be a daunting undertaking.


As the complexity of industrial control systems evolves, so does the number of devices and applications that need to be patched for both security and compliance reasons.


A robust patching program for IT and OT environments requires a cyclical and consistently monitored solution to ensure a secure and healthy system. To build a complete patch management program FoxGuard Solutions provides the following services:

   >   Asset Identification & Baseline
   >   Availability Reporting
   >   Applicability Reporting
   >   Patch Acquisition 
   >   Patch Validation
