The realities of security and compliance have changed considerably since patch management faced its first big paradigm shift some years ago. At that time many organizations wrestled with the transition from manual patching and remediation to an automated process. Of course, nothing in security is ever static, so it is no surprise that patch management has continued to evolve since then. Though still automated, today’s best patch management tools and techniques are significantly different from their predecessors. In this whitepaper, Lumension Security’s Matt Mosher, Senior Vice President of the Americas, gives an historical perspective on how this evolution unfolded and why it is important for organizations to evolve their patch management technology in order to remain on top of increasing security attacks.
