Use NextGen Patch Management Technology to Enhance Cybersecurity Protection

It is common knowledge that more than 60% of all reported breaches in 2019 were due to unpatched vulnerabilities even though fixes were available. The delta between patch availability and deployment remains dangerously high which creates a window of opportunity for attackers to exploit. Companies worldwide have mustered the motivation to address the most common cybersecurity challenges but are hampered by technological and procedural lapses when it comes to vulnerability and patch management.

Traditional patch management tools rely on legacy technologies that add complexity and therefore inhibit their implementation. As organizations deal with the involution of modern IT systems, attention has shifted from reactive response to proactive asset discovery, classification, and automatic patching across hybrid networks and heterogeneous devices.

Modern patch management is contextual; it is a multi-faceted undertaking that requires proactive planning, threat assessment, and risk mitigation. Accurate asset scanning, cataloging, risk validation, threat correlation, deployment, and monitoring are necessary steps in maintaining an organization’s digital health.

OPSWAT’s Vulnerability and Patch Management Module (VAPM) is one of the key modules in the OESIS Framework, a cross-platform, versatile and modular framework that enables software engineers and technology vendors to build advanced endpoint security products. The VAPM is built upon OPSWAT’s experience in deploying Device Compliance solutions and managing our Access Control Certification Program. The VAPM also taps into OPSWAT’s extensive knowledge of close to 30,000 CVEs associated with applications and operating systems.
