SecurePATCHING Managed Service by Secure Sense

Unpatched systems are the most common technological factor in breaches and loss of productivity. Unfortunately, solutions to patch related risks are often themselves costly in terms of identifying and purchasing quality products, staffing and expertise.

Almost two-thirds of breach victims report being breached due to unpatched, known vulnerabilities and many of these victims were unaware that their organizations were vulnerable in the first place. Over half of the impacted organizations rely on manual patching processes that make it exceedingly difficult to keep up-to-date on patching cycles; meanwhile, the attack surface has exploded recently due to remote work scenarios and tens of thousands of CVEs are reported each year and this number is only increasing.). Cyber threats are more prevalent than ever, preying on outdated operating systems and applications, and endpoints are increasingly difficult to patch and troubleshoot due to their mobility, being off-net to patching tools and overburdened staff not having the resources necessary to overcome those hurdles. Even with the right tools, staffing and expertise are a challenge for IT budgets, especially where patching needs are typically messy, require follow-up processes and operate on conflicting schedules for staff availability. So, what can you do?
