1E, a provider of digital employee experience technology, has launched 1E Patch Insights, a new solution designed to give IT administrators real-time visibility into the patch landscape and the ability to easily resolve challenging patch issues.
The solution comes after Microsoft’s first Patch Tuesday of 2023 resulted in patches for more than 100 vulnerabilities, which London-based 1E says highlights the increasing risk that vulnerabilities pose to an organization.
According to 1E Patch Insights is designed to ensure that endpoints are always up-to-date and secure by providing insights and visibility to help IT administrators address vulnerabilities.
The company says 1E Patch Insights augments native Microsoft patching processes by surfacing real-time information about the process and detailed patching failure information. In addition the solution gives administrators “complete visibility” of the device environment via detailed device health, configuration and patch status data.
In a blog, the company says a lack of complete visibility into their patching status via native solutions can lead to delays in reaching patch service-level agreements and securing and environment.
According to 1E, Patch Insights allows administrators to proactively remediate any device issues that may prevent a patch from completing when using 1E Endpoint Automation.
The Patch Insights dashboard provides a list of all crucial patches and their stats in real-time, along with information that allows admins to protect the Microsoft endpoint environment.
To help administrators prioritize patches, Patch Insights provides a priority scoring metric for each patch, so they can address the most critical patches first.
Administrators can also issue patches directly from the dashboard using SCCM, WSUS or Intune patching capabilities, the company says.
“Our DEX platform is unique in that along with improving experience and helping IT align with the business, it also helps the digital workplace be more secure,” says Mark Banfield, CEO of 1E. “1E Patch Insights, part of that platform, is a major piece of that promise, giving unprecedented visibility and closing the vulnerability window.”
