Average Time to Remediation Hits 205 Days

According to a report from NTT | Application Security, the average time it takes for vulnerability management teams to remediate cybersecurity vulnerabilities has increased to 205 days. This implies that vulnerability management and patch management don’t receive the support required for effective security hygiene on a systemic level even in the face of the numerous security breaches that have become a mainstay in the global news.

To Patch or Not to Patch

Nowadays, unpatched software represents a massive cybersecurity challenge for IT enterprises. Therefore, the vulnerability in this environment is common and patches are available to prevent any cyber threats. 

Common Issues with Patch Management

What is Patch Management?
