Why Patch Management is Still the Best First Line of Defense

Vulnerabilities are on the rise - especially from third party, non-Microsoft applications, which according to Secunia’s latest report have four times more vulnerabilities than Microsoft applications[1]. And cybercriminals have taken notice, exploiting these vulnerabilities at a faster rate than ever before. Today more than 2 million malware signatures are identified each month and traditional anti-virus defenses simply can’t keep up. Even the major anti-virus vendors have concluded that stand-alone anti-virus no longer provides an effective defense and that additional layers of security technology are needed to address the rising volume and sophistication of threats that are taking advantage of vulnerabilities.

Watch this webcast to learn:
  • Why you can't forget about older vulnerabilities
  • How to reduce exposure from both OS and 3rd party application vulnerabilities
  • The challenges with reliance upon "free&wuot; patching tools and native updaters
  • Why patch management should be considered as the core of an effective depth-in-defense endpoint security approach
