Spinnaker Shield vs. Software Publisher Patches
While security patches aim to mitigate exposed vulnerabilities, the reality of vendor patch management is that the process often falls short of its goal, with final fixes for an exposure being released years ago.
|Patches are not timely (can take months or even years to receive final fix).
|Compensating controls and configuration suggestions are relayed to the customer within days to weeks.
|Patches are one-size-fits-all and may be problematic for customizations.
|Receive fixes tailored to your system.
|Patches may not be available for older versions and applications.
|By addressing issues at the infrastructure level, you protect the entire stack, regardless of app versions.
|Patches require valuable time to test and install.
|Isolate testing to the area effected by the vulnerability rather than the entire system.
|Often organizations are too short staffed or don’t have a patch management system in place to regularly apply patches.
|Address the issue at the source and convey the proper hardening techniques.
