How’s Your Vulnerability Management Program?

According to a 2023 Cybersecurity Insiders survey, half of surveyed organizations (51%) have, at best, a moderate level of visibility into vulnerabilities and 26% detected more than 100 new vulnerabilities every month. Find out how you compare.

76% of survey respondents stated the top objective of their vulnerability management program was to prioritize risk based on vulnerabilities and criticality of assets, while the second objective was to identify known vulnerabilities across the IT environment (73%).

Nearly a quarter of the organizations surveyed (24%) reported experiencing a breach due to unaddressed vulnerabilities, revealing the real-world implications of neglected vulnerabilities.

The majority of organizations identified budget constraints (56%) and skill shortages (46%) as the most substantial barriers to improved vulnerability management.

Patch Management FAQ
What is Patch Management?2023-09-20T10:37:22+00:00

Patch Management is the process of keeping desktops, laptops, servers and applications up-to-date by deploying security updates or feature upgrades. Patches often fix a security vulnerability or deliver additional functionality and features.

Why Patch Management Matters?2023-09-20T10:36:58+00:00

Patches are released by vendors to fix system vulnerabilities. Failing to install these updates often results in devices being vulnerable to attack. Nearly 60% of organizations that suffered a data breach in the past two years cite as the culprit a known vulnerability for which they had not yet patched.

What Processes Make Up Patch Management?2023-09-20T10:36:35+00:00

The first processes involved with patch management are discovery and inventory. You can’t manage a device if you don’t know it exists on your network. Then you would need to run a patch scan on all the devices to see if there are any missing software updates. These should be grouped by criticality.

When building a patch management strategy, it is important to consider the three general categories of updates when prioritizing issues: critical, important, and optional. Critical updates typically involve security, privacy and reliability, while important updates address non-critical problems to help enhance the computing experience. Optional updates can include updates to drivers, for example, or new software, and they often enhance computing as well. A solid testing environment is recommended as well. Never use your own device to test patches. The final step is to deploy the patches and report results.

What is the Future of Patch Management?2023-09-20T10:35:07+00:00

Tomorrow’s patch management solutions will help IT and Security teams work together to ensure that all devices are up to date and attacks can be quarantined and remediated before any damage is done. Security patches will be rolled out efficiently, based on vulnerability prioritization, and all teams involved in the process work together so that the entire vulnerability management process runs smoothly.
