5. JetPatch


Founded: 2010

Also honored in:

“New IT vulnerabilities are being exposed at an alarming rate, overwhelming IT and InfoSec teams. At the same time, the key approach to dealing with vulnerabilities — patching — is completely broken in most enterprises. We at JetPatch decided to do something about it.

JetPatch helps organizations secure their business and keep their devices up to date while ensuring business continuity and performance. As a modern patch management platform, JetPatch enables enterprises to take full control of their patch management operations using automation. It was designed to handle Windows & Linux operating systems, servers & workstations, as well as on-premise and cloud deployments, all within one holistic solution. It collects and correlates information from multiple resources, uses AI predictive analytics to constantly learn and improve operations and SLAs while feeding information from across the enterprise ecosystem.

Traditional patch management tools focus on the deployment of patches and work in silos. Deployment, however, is not the main cause for the many patch failures out there. Instead, the problem is the unstructured process in which IT and security teams handle patch operation and vulnerability remediation while ignoring the enterprise ecosystem. As a result, vulnerabilities remain unaddressed for long periods of time, putting the organization at great risk.”

Families can go to www.meetcaregivers.com and watch 1-3 minute video profiles of the caregivers talking about their experience, skills, background and availability to get to know the caregivers before scheduling interviews.
