Patch Management

Patch Management

Jim had been having an easy week. He was confident he’d be able to address most of the items on his to-do list. However, Wednesday morning, Jim realized his list would have to be set aside. It took the first few hours of his day sorting through help desk tickets to recognize that a bad server patch had been applied the prior evening. This impacted the company’s ERP software in a way that caused the organization to not be able to process any new transactions.

Microsoft, VMware, Adobe and other major software companies publish software patches, bug fixes, and security updates routinely. If your company implements these patches without proper vetting, the risks of disrupting your workflow are significant.

Patch updates pending for months or years can lead to significant security breaches for your organization.

“Over 80% of security breaches are a result of poor patch management.” – BusinessWire
