Server Patch Management and Antivirus Protection

All Microsoft Windows servers that are hosted in the data centre are subscribed to the WSUS (Windows Server Update Services) to ensure that software patches, Service Packs and Security updates are automatically installed on the Server.  In addition, an Anti-Virus application is installed to cater for the range of effects that the various payloads of virus traffic are likely to cause.  In both instances (WSUS and Anti-Virus) there is a central server that provides for the automatic distribution of the latest signature files and patches.
