Security is Complex. Patching with Microsoft® System Center Shouldn’t Be.
Key Features
Users demand a host of 3rd party applications be installed on their endpoints to ensure
productivity – applications like Adobe Reader, Java JRE, and various browsers
like Chrome and Firefox. With these applications come more vulnerabilities –
in fact, recent data suggest that over 75% of all endpoint vulnerabilities are found
in these 3rd party applications. No wonder that 61% of IT administrators responding
to the 2015 State of the Endpoint report by the Ponemon Institute stated that staying
current on needed third-party patches is one of the most significant risks they face.
