Why Choose Virtual Patching over Vendor Patching for Database Security
A traditional, vendor patch-oriented approach to enterprise software security could leave you vulnerable to unpatched threats and create resource constraints. Virtual patching offers organizations more effective protection when vendor patches are not available, not possible, or not practical. With ransomware attacks, data theft, and phishing attempts increasing in frequency and effect, businesses can’t afford to merely rely on vendor patches that are often released well after the threat has emerged or don’t cover the full threat spectrum. If you’re depending on your vendor to protect your software and the valuable data it holds, don’t. According to the Rimini Street sponsored Aberdeen report, “Why Adopt Virtual Patching Vs. Vendor Patching for Enterprise Software Security?” more than 22,000 vulnerabilities were disclosed in 2020, and nearly 5,000 had no vendor patch by year-end. The report compares the business outcomes, costs, and efficacy of virtual patching and vendor patching. Highlights of the analysis include: Why a traditional, patch-oriented approach to enterprise software security falls short How virtual patching works and use cases where it’s most applicable Tips for making the technical case for replacing vendor patching with virtual patching Quantifying the operational cost of a vendor patch-oriented approach to enterprise software patches and upgrades For complete datasets, analysis, and insights, download a complimentary copy of the full report.
