Vendors regularly provide application patches to fix vulnerabilities that make them susceptible to cyber-attack.
Because these vulnerabilities are targeted by bad actors, organisations can reduce their security risk by patching applications as soon as the application patches are made available by the vendors.
Organisations need confidence that their patching application regimes are working so that application patches are reaching all their devices routinely and no applications are unpatched and vulnerable.
The purpose of patching applications is to reduce the risk associated with ‘bugs’ and security vulnerabilities within those applications.
By patching these vulnerabilities, organisations reduce the risk of gaps within applications that could be used by malicious actors to compromise IT security.
Organisations need to be confident that they are using the latest version of all their applications. They also must have successfully deployed the most recent patches for all applications to all endpoints.
Introspectus collects details of applications installed on each computer within an organisation.
This information is then analysed to provide insights on how well the organisation is performing application patching, including a real-time view on:
