Gitex 2014: G DATA PatchManagement closes software vulnerabilities
10 Oct 2014

Protection for sensitive company data – without back doors, guaranteed.

Almost 30 percent of companies have suffered financial damage in recent years due to cyber attacks – and 27 percent have suspected an attack. One reason for this is that software security flaws are frequently underestimated as gateways for cyber attacks and industrial spying. The current G DATA Generation 13 business solutions set benchmarks in terms of network security, functionality and usability. Following the redevelopment of G DATA PatchManagement, IT departments and managers can permanently keep an eye on the update status of clients and find the function they need faster, thanks to the clearer dashboard. This makes it possible to reduce both costs and the time spent on administration. Trade visitors can only find GERMANSICHERHEIT on the Gitex at hall 1,stand C1-13.

 

According to Microsoft, on average 22 vulnerabilities are discovered each day – which equals around 8000 flaws per year. Around 70 percent of those are actively exploited for cyber attacks – even though a patch has already been made available for 90 percent of the vulnerabilities at the time of the respective attack.

 

Cyber criminals exploit these security flaws to attack companies. This enables the perpetrators to steal sensitive company data and gain access to the network.

 

PatchManagement: always fully up-to-date

On the average company computer, 74 different applications are installed, some 69 percent of which come from third party providers. This means that the IT department has to work with over 30 different update processes, and administrators quickly lose sight of what's going on.

 

Companies can keep their IT infrastructure permanently up to date with the powerful G DATA add-on module PatchManagement. With the assistance of the world's biggest patch database, the module offers reliable information on updates for installed programs. This means that potential vulnerabilities are reliably closed before they can be exploited by attackers. Improved usability and a clearer dashboard make it easy to keep track of the update status of the clients.

 

The PatchManagement module now fully supports all modern Windows systems with completely automated security updates. The re-engineered module is available for the G DATA Business Generation 13.1 solutions ANTIVIRUS, CLIENT SECURITY and ENDPOINT PROTECTION.
