Microsoft brings up with Security Update Guide Portal which is something cool and super exciting as this portal will make Patch Admin life much easier. When Microsoft release Patch Tuesday Patch Admin will follow Microsoft Security Bulletins to find out what all updates are released from the security bulletins site, Microsft didn’t have a common dashboard or portal to filter and sort them down based on Operating System and product.
Monthly Patch List admins will compile to filter down patches based on Operating System and product.But using Security Update Guide portal things has become simpler and easier. From new portal we can:
- Sort and filter security vulnerability and update content, for example, by CVE, KB number, product, or release date.
- Filter out products that don’t apply to you, and drill down to more detailed security update information for products that do.
- Leverage a new RESTful API to obtain Microsoft security update information. This eliminates the need for you to employ outdated methods like screen-scraping of security bulletin web pages to assemble working databases of necessary and actionable information.
Security Bulletins will be published till January 2017, from next month onwards we can find all the security updates information on the Security Updates Portal.
