The importance of validation
With validated patch management, the updates are validated in a lab that mimics the plant environment in order to identify any incompatibilities that may exist before the patch is applied. This
allows operators to determine what alterations need to be made to ensure uptime and protection against cyber threats without having to create simulators themselves. Our testing is done in a secure lab environment using both physical hardware and software, which is the best method to guarantee industrial controls receive tailored patches and an applicability report on a monthly basis.
