Is Your Patch Management Patchy?

Anne Bisagno

30 SECOND READ

Installing software patches as soon as they're released is one of the simplest ways to lower IT security risk. So why are so many organizations failing to do it?

 

A recent survey suggests that IT is drowning in patches. Half of respondents said vendors are releasing patches at an unmanageable rate. Two-thirds said that at least some of the time, their security teams have a difficult time figuring out which patch needs to be applied to which system. And nearly 9 out of 10 said patches that are embedded in updates for other products — such as Adobe Flash patches in Google Chrome updates — make it even harder to understand.

 

If your organization is struggling with patch management, call Xantrion. We understand how to apply patches to keep your IT security properly covered.
