Enable Efficient and Reliable Patching

As part of essential mitigation strategies to prevent malware delivery and execution and to limit the extent of cyber security incidents, Action1 enables you to implement a reliable patch management process, no matter where your endpoints are located. As the process becomes highly automated with Action1, you save time and maintenance costs to keep your systems and applications constantly updated while ensuring higher levels of protection and closing the opportunity windows for attackers.

Patch applications

Automatically update most common applications, tested and curated by Action1. Upload new versions of your custom and proprietary applications and update them from the same console. 


Identify missing patches

Never miss a critical or security patch. Find out what updates are available for Windows OS and third-party applications but missing from your endpoints to patch your systems and apps as soon as updates are available.

Automate patching

Prioritize patches by severity, test them on a testing system, approve patches for deployment, stage their delivery by endpoint group or schedule it outside business hours to minimize downtime.

Barry Carmichael

IT Support Manager, Tamborine Mountain College

With our previous tool, we were under constant risk, as 20% of our network was not being patched with security updates because they were off-site or not joined to our company domain. Action1 addresses this security gap by enabling us to establish a robust patch management program that covers 100% of our devices.

Joe Holder

IT Director, The Arthur Companies

We are audited for ISO 27001:2018, and patch management is one of the requirements. Thanks to Action1, we’ve set up patching policies that meet our organization’s needs. As a result, we update the whole infrastructure in minutes. We also leverage Action1 to monitor the state of our IT assets as required by ISO 27001:2018.
