A lack of updates to the system/software infrastructure could result in critical parts of it not working.Businesses cannot afford to adopt an approach of “if it’s not broken, don’t fix it”.Panda Patch Management, a module of Panda Adaptive Defense, manages vulnerabilities – outdated systems and third-party software – and their corresponding updates and patches. whether systems or software is outdated and patch status, is provided in real time and across the enterprise.The solution also correlates detected and identified threats with uncovered vulnerabilities to minimise response time and contain and remediate attacks through automated patch application.Neglecting these updates is akin to someone leaving their front door open and windows unlocked, but many businesses simply cannot afford to take their activities offline for even a minute.For businesses with this kind of complex infrastructure, it’s easy to understand why updates and patches are pushed further and further back.But cybersecurity is only as good as its weakest link.If a business uses outdated systems or software, endpoints are left vulnerable and can be readily compromised by a cybercriminal with very little working knowledge.
When available, the Sound Touch app will prompt you to update upon opening the app.
The “gold standard” for the implementation of critical patches is 30 days, and 90 days for non-critical patches, although that’s still more than enough time for cyber criminals to do damage.
Often, these businesses have bespoke systems and/or software applications that are set up in a certain way and only work with specific versions of software.
Wanna Cry and the Equifax and BA hacks are all high-profile examples of successful attacks on unpatched systems.
But these cases also have something else in common: each one could have been avoided.
You can also manually check if an update is available in the Sound Touch app by doing the following steps: At the prompt, click SAVE to save the file to your desktop (do not rename the file).
