Key Strategies to Address Rising Application Risk in Your Enterprise

Endpoint risk has shifted from operating system to third party application vulnerabilities, which now account for more than two-thirds of all endpoint vulnerabilities. These third party applications also take twice as long as operating systems for most organizations to patch[1], which is why the SANS Institute now ranks patching client-side software as the top IT security priority.

Cybercriminals have taken notice of this shift. Even as organizations have improved patch management processes for their operating systems and vendors have plugged many of the security gaps within their platforms, the un-patched vulnerabilities for third party applications and software provides attackers with many new options to exploit – there are at least 2.7 billion un-patched applications running on machines within the U.S. alone, and 98 percent of Windows machines have at least one un-patched application.[2]

In this webcast, we’ll examine how to:
  • Identify and assess the vulnerabilities that create the most IT risk for your organization
  • Automate policy enforcement to ensure continuous patch management for operating systems and applications - in both physical and virtual environments
  • Layer your security approach with prioritized IT risk mitigation, antivirus and application whitelisting
