Simplified Patch Management with Puppet - Oct. 2020

Does your company struggle with patching systems? If so, you’re not alone — most organizations have attempted to solve this issue by cobbling together multiple tools, processes, and different teams, which can make an already complicated issue worse.

Puppet helps keep hosts healthy, secure and compliant by replacing time-consuming and error prone patching processes with Puppet’s automated patching solution.

Join this webinar to learn how to do the following with Puppet:
Eliminate manual patching processes with pre-built patching automation for Windows and Linux systems.
Gain visibility into patching status across your estate regardless of OS with new patching solution from the PE console.
Ensure your systems are compliant and patched in a healthy state
How Puppet Enterprise makes patch management easy across your Windows and Linux operating systems.

Presented by: Margaret Lee, Product Manager, Puppet, and Ajay Sridhar, Sr. Sales Engineer, Puppet.
