Why Patch Management is Still the Best First Line of Defense

Presented by

Paul Henry

About this talk

Vulnerabilities are on the rise - especially from third party, non-Microsoft applications, which have four times more vulnerabilities than Microsoft applications. 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. In this webcast, security and forensics analyst Paul Henry will examine: • 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” patching tools and native updaters • Why you should consider patch management as the core of an effective depth-in-defense endpoint security approach
