It’s no secret that vulnerabilities are on the rise, and cybercriminals have been taking full advantage developing bigger and better tools for hacking,
Scottsdale, AZ (Vocus/PRWEB) April 05, 2011
Vulnerabilities are on the rise - especially from third party, non-Microsoft applications, which have four times more vulnerabilities than Microsoft applications. Cybercriminals are well aware of this fact and have been exploiting these vulnerabilities at a faster rate than ever before. Lumension®, the global leader in endpoint management and security, will host a webcast to discuss why patch management continues to be an important and reliable first line of defense against rising third party application risk and malware threats.
Paul Henry, security and forensics expert at Lumension will explore:
- Why you can’t forget about older vulnerabilities;
- How to reduce exposure from both OS and 3rd party application vulnerabilities;
- The challenges with reliance upon “free” patching tools and native updaters; and,
- Why you should consider patch management as the core of an effective endpoint security approach.
“It’s no secret that vulnerabilities are on the rise, and cybercriminals have been taking full advantage developing bigger and better tools for hacking,” said Henry. “Patch management has evolved from simple security fixes to more of a vulnerability management lifecycle, and keeping this at the core of your endpoint security strategy is the first step in protecting endpoints from risky applications.”
The webcast will take place on Wednesday, April 13, 11am EST. Register for this webcast: "Why Patch Management is Still the Best First Line of Defense."
