Patch Management is used to push Windows updates to HLS owned computers. Keeping computers up to date is important, as this can prevent security and operational failures.

Users will have a very passive role in patch management. After patches have been pushed by ITS, the HLS-owned computer will automatically install the patches and then request a reboot from the user.
- Computer must be connected to the HLS wired network
- Users will be prompted to reboot via pop-up bubble from the taskbar
