5. Zero-Day: vulnerabilities, exploits, attacks and how to deal with them
Given the obvious security flaws and vulnerabilities associated with long-term remote and hybrid work, cybercriminals around the world are having a blast. Applying software patches is an effective defense against hackers. However, cybercriminals can wreak havoc on your system even before you can install patches by exploiting zero-day vulnerabilities. A zero-day vulnerability is a flaw in a network or software that has not been patched or for which a patch is not available. The software or device vendor may or may not be aware of this flaw. If this flaw is discovered, it presents a greater cyber attack risk to organizations using the software or device. Is there a way to strengthen your defense against zero-day attacks? Find out in our blog post.
4. Applying Third-Party Patches: Everything You Need to Know
While we’re talking about patch management, let’s not forget the importance of third-party patches in building an overall security posture for your business. Third-party patching is the process of deploying patch updates to third-party applications that have been installed on one or more of your endpoints (for example, servers, desktops, or laptops). Want to learn more about why third-party patches are an essential part of IT security? Check out our informative blog post here.
3. High Availability: What It Is and How to Achieve It
While it’s impossible to completely rule out the possibility of downtime, IT teams can implement strategies to minimize the risk of business interruptions due to system unavailability. One of the most effective ways to manage downtime risk is through high availability (HA), which facilitates maximum potential uptime. So how do you measure high availability and what are the best practices for achieving it? Get answers to these questions and more in our insightful high availability blog post here.
