Action1 helps to discover, prioritize, and remediate vulnerabilities in a single solution to prevent security breaches and ransomware attacks. It automates patching of third-party software and operating systems, ensuring continuous patch compliance and remediation of security vulnerabilities before they are exploited.

Patch management. It’s one of those tasks that nobody wants to do, but it’s essential.

Patch Management products facilitate the downloading and installation of patches provided by operating system and software vendors. The products will also help systems administrators to test a patch in a controlled environment in order to detect any problems.

According to Gartner’s Hype Cycle for Endpoint Security, 2022, security and risk leaders must prepare to select next-wave technology to continue to protect endpoints from attacks and breaches.

Your organization should be reducing the time that it takes to patch software and operating systems, as monthly patch cycles don’t address how quickly attackers are moving and the remote nature of work.

Are zero day attacks real? Absolutely. Are they the biggest issue for most organizations? No. The top issue in vulnerability management is that organizations aren’t prioritizing their patching and compensating controls to align to vulnerabilities targeted by threat actors.

Infrastructure and operations leaders can improve efficiency and security by taking a modern approach to patching Windows and third-party applications.

Action1, an American company based out of Houston, Texas, recently announced the release of their Continuous Patch Compliance feature leveraging automated remediation of security vulnerabilities.

Proper patch management requires your organization to evaluate, test, and approve patches. What’s really going to save your bacon, however, is automating patch deployment. If you haven’t already automated patch pushes, use the threat of ransomware as the political cover you need to make it happen.

Risk-based vulnerability management solutions foster the convergence of risk management and vulnerability management.
