Update monitoring:
Greater software and operating system security


Software and operating systems are constantly evolving. Every week, new weak spots are discovered and eliminated. Security loopholes are detected and closed. Above all, security-related updates and patches must be added quickly in order to remove dangerous gateways in your systems.

Professional update and patch monitoring ensures that all of the operating systems and applications currently in use are up-to-date. Gone are the days of manually checking for all the latest versions. With PRTG in the background, you can rest assured that when it comes to your software, everything is in order.

Thanks to PRTG, the entire staff can work with peace of mind.

How Update Monitoring with PRTG works


A sensor scans applications and operating systems for their current version, then inquires online as to the most current version available. If the two do not match, the administrator will be notified as instructed or an update will be arranged.

An example: PRTG features the preinstalled Windows Updates Status (Powershell) Sensor so you can be sure your Windows is always up-to-date.
