Keep your personal computer up to date.

Category list:Deakin tools Security

Patch for Home is a new feature for your personally owned computer which keeps your operating system and third party apps up-to-date. The University’s enterprise workstations have benefited from the stability and security of being automatically updated and patched for some time. Patch for Home brings this security to BYO devices owned by Deakin students and staff.

Based on Ivanti’s Security Controls technology, Patch checks for and automatically installs updates for many of the apps on your computer, even when you’re not connected to Deakin’s on-campus network. Products that are automatically patched include 7-Zip, WinZip, Adobe Reader, Adobe Flash Player, Mozilla Firefox, Google Chrome and lots more.
