Streamlining Your Patch Management Processes

Patch management is a core element of any security strategy. But patch management is only as effective as the bugs it can identify. Undiscovered vulnerabilities are a massive risk to an organization as bad actors find their way into organizations and manipulate open-source, third-party components in software. It is essential to create a patching process that will identify and repair vulnerabilities of all kinds. In this webinar, patch management experts will offer insights on the latest critical applications vulnerabilities and dive into the tools and best practices you can use to find and remediate bugs in a timely way that keeps you secure.
