Prism Patch Manager is an application that audits and remediates system configuration and software vulnerabilities within your network. It also provides network-wide installation of content updates, such as software or service packs.
Prism Patch Manager’s core component, the Prism Patch Manager Server, is installed on a single Web server within your network. This server downloads content and then deploys it throughout your network. Content includes data that identifies vulnerabilities, appropriate patches for remediation, and various other types of software and service packs. Content is deployed with assistance from Prism Patch Manager’s other component, the agent.
The agent is a component installed on endpoints, which are computers or other devices. The agent scans its host endpoint via a Discover Applicable Updates (DAU) task. This DAU task takes a system inventory of the endpoint's software, hardware, and system configuration settings. The DAU results are sent back to the server, which compares these results with a list of known vulnerabilities. Based on these results and administrator input, the server deploys required content.
Prism Patch Manager Server Components
Application Server: The server responsible for Web site, replication services, and endpoint distribution services.
Database Server: The server responsible for SQL database and stored procedures.
These components may share a physical server or operate on separate physical servers.
