Vulnerability Management: Optimise Patching Solutions & Stay Ahead of Threats

Presented by

Paul Fenwick, Senior Sales Engineer, Avast | Todd Schell, Senior Product Manager, Ivant

About this talk

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
