Vulnerability Management: Optimise Patching Solutions & Stay Ahead of Threats

Vulnerability management and patching has been widely compared to the use of seat belts in cars. In terms of the level of protection provided by patching - this comparison is no overstatement. The U.S National Security Agency estimates that 85% of targeted cyberattacks would have been prevented with the patching of applications and patching of operating systems. Patching uses automation to distribute and deploy patches across thousands of devices from one console. This is especially relevant in today’s climate, as remote patching allows you to deploy patches to distributed devices.

However, some security-conscious professionals are still wary of patching, concerned that patches introduce security problems and can cause disruption. Effective and modern patching, like Avast patching solutions, addresses and solves these issues. Given that in 2019, 60% of data breaches were linked to a vulnerability where a patch was available but not applied, now is the time to implement efficient patching and vulnerability management regardless of fears.

In this session, we will:
- Discuss why patching is so important
- Share real life use cases
- Debunk fears and concerns about patching and vulnerability management

  • Protecting Your Business with a Layered Security Approach Recorded: Apr 20 2021 31 mins
    Rob Krug, Senior Security Architect at Avast
    With persistent threats on the horizon, it’s important to make sure your security measures are always doing the most for you and your organization. One of the best ways to do this is through layering. Similarly to wrapping up with layers in the winter to protect from the cold, it’s important to layer your security controls to protect your resources and data from cyberattacks.

    Layering is so important, as it’s virtually impossible to keep track of all possible threats. But with a layering solution, you can protect every possible weakness. While layering has been around for a long time, new ways to apply and integrate these solutions have continued to evolve. For example, Avast delivers critical layers of security - all from the cloud.

    In this session, we will discuss:
    - Why layering is such a powerful cybersecurity tool
    - Managing your layering solutions from a single cloud-based console
    - What layers you need to protect your data
  • Making Zero Trust Part of Your Digital Transformation Journey Recorded: Mar 23 2021 34 mins
    Rob Krug, Senior Security Architect, Avast | Jordan Fischer, Global Privacy Team Lead, Beckage
    Cybersecurity has historically been very slow to adapt to change. Processes take a long time to be worked out and enforced, and security methods become forces of habit rather than innovative and efficient as a result. Digital Transformation has seen a huge wave of Cloud migration. In fact, FireMon's State of Hybrid Cloud Security Survey found that 60% of businesses are embracing the cloud at a rate that outpaces their ability to secure it.

    With such a large degree of cloud transformation, you must move away from tired cybersecurity systems, like VPNs, and move towards more modern and efficient ways of protecting your organization. Securing your Cloud transformation with a zero trust approach simplifies your cloud based management, allowing you to consistently manage from one platform. 78% of enterprises are looking to adopt a zero trust strategy. Join this session to find out why.

    In this session we will discuss:
    - The business benefits of ZTNA
    - Replacing VPN connection with Zero Trust - and why it’s time to move away from VPNs
    - Improving user experience with Avast Secure Private Access
  • Working from Anywhere - Safely (and it doesn’t involve VPN) Recorded: Mar 18 2021 38 mins
    Rob Krug - Sales Engineer at Avast

    We’ll be covering:

    Why traditional VPN no longer works to protect the modern, cloud-first workplace
    The trending shift towards cloud-delivered, zero trust network access solutions (and away from VPN)
    A closer look into Avast Business’ Secure Private Access, an alternative to VPN that delivers enhanced security, better user experience, secure scalability, and more

  • Protecting your Networks from Hidden, Encrypted Threats Recorded: Dec 16 2020 17 mins
    Rob Krug - Senior Security Architect, Avast Business
    How can you protect users when they click on bad links?

    As internet traffic is almost entirely encrypted, analysts predict that cyberattacks will also come from encrypted traffic sources.

    The question is - how can mid-sized companies protect themselves? UTMs may have been a good solution at one point, but the company network perimeter has evolved and moved to the cloud. Remote working has now become the norm.

    So how can we protect employees from encrypted threats? Watch this on-demand webinar with Avast’s security expert, Rob Krug, to learn more about:

    - How new attacks using encrypted traffic are much more efficient and sophisticated.
    - How you can protect employees from encrypted cyberattacks when your company UTM infrastructure can no longer help.
    - How to develop a sustainable security strategy to support mobile employees.
  • How to Combat Evolving Network Security Threats Recorded: Dec 8 2020 34 mins
    Rob Krug - Senior Security Architect at Avast
    Ten years ago, less than 10% of all internet traffic was encrypted, and UTM security appliances still protected most offices. Now, the network is no longer defined by company walls. It has become increasingly mobile, and it has created new opportunities for cyberattackers as a result.

    Join us for our new webinar on December 8 at 10:00AM ET/3:00PM GMT as we discuss how to achieve modern network security with Secure Internet Gateway and Secure Private Access. Rob Krug, a Senior Security Architect at Avast, will be presenting valuable insights for your business that you won’t want to miss.
