Patch Management Policy added to Infrastructure Policy Bundle

Patch Management PolicyWith the ever rising availability of enterprise data to mobile users there has been a significant increase in security exposure for information and network assets. The CEO of Janco Associates said, “As many as 90 percent of successful attacks are against vulnerabilities in which a patch already exists. Despite this statistic, many computers do not have the latest security patches installed, putting organizations at serious risk from a variety of malware threats. Patches are time-consuming to track and administer, and it is often difficult to see which computers actually have critical patches installed correctly. Without this visibility, IT managers have no simple method of identifying computers most at risk. ” He added, “To meet this requirement Janco has added a Patch Management Policy to its popular CIO Infrastructure Policy Bundle. ”
