About Patch Scan Templates

Security Controls comes with two predefined patch scan templates: Security Patch Scan and All Patches. While these templates are good for most scanning activities, some administrators desire a higher level of flexibility when scanning machines. To this end, Security Controls includes the ability to create any number of custom scan templates granting you the means to completely customize the way that machines are scanned.

Patch scan templates enable you to:

  • Scan a smaller or larger number of machines simultaneously
  • Customize what is actually scanned for or ignored
  • Specify which, if any, filters are used (you can filter by product, patch, patch type, or vendor severity level)
  • Configure automatic email notifications
