The Virtues of Virtual Patching

For many companies, the process of managing vulnerabilities and threats to their IT infrastructure consumes a significant portion of their limited IT resources, and keeps them painfully distracted from projects aimed at innovation and growth. The strategic deployment of selected compensating controls, such as virtual patching, can provide a kind of protective shield that effectively buys the organization more time to assess, plan, test and remediate vulnerabilities and threats -- a potentially attractive alternative to the value-sucking activities of Patch Tuesdays, emergency patches and workarounds, endless testing, and unplanned downtime.
