Security updates refer to the missing patches and service packs detected on target computers by patch management scans. These updates fix bugs or performance issues of the operating system and third-party software installed on a computer. Patch updates are downloaded directly from the vendors servers. Microsoft updates are downloaded from Microsoft and third parties such as Adobe and Firefox are downloaded from third party servers respectively. GFI does not tamper or provide customized installations of patch and service pack updates. We distribute patches as provided and signed off by the vendor.
