Patch Management Just Another Event in Continuous Delivery
The key to implementing a scalable patch management and validation solution is treating patching updates like any other event that is automated as part of a continuous delivery pipeline. Chef enables clients to automate system patching as part of CI/CD pipelines by providing the tools and best practices ops teams need to prioritize, test, run and validate patches consistently across Windows, Mac and Linux devices both on-premises and in the cloud.

Operations teams spend 90% less time packaging and delivering patches.
Downtime is eliminated and App teams self-manage patch events as part of automated pipelines.
Compliance teams can view the status and validate systems in real-time across their entire IT estate.
