Carry an Umbrella and It Won’t Rain – Patching to Protect against the Bad Things

Presented by

Rob Ayoub, IDC Research Director

About this talk

Organizations struggle to prioritize and implement the vast number of patches being introduced by software vendors. Testing and implementing takes time and most organizations simply apply a blanket set of patches for well-known software. However, attacks like ransomware are multi-vector and target a wide range of vulnerable software. While many of these vulnerabilities have patches, most organizations are not applying the most critical patches across their infrastructure, leaving them open to these very effective attacks. In this webinar, IDC Research Director Rob Ayoub and Flexera Software will discuss the need for a more targeted approach to patching – an approach that considers the exploitability of vulnerabilities and other factors beyond a CVE score.
