VentureBeat is here to talk to you about an important executive event called AI Unleashed. This event is all about enterprise data leaders coming together to network and learn from each other. It’s a great opportunity to connect with industry peers and gain valuable insights. Trust me, you don’t want to miss out on this.
Now, let’s get into the nitty-gritty. Did you know that most organizations have no clue how many outdated and exposed endpoints they have? It’s true. And on top of that, they have no idea whether their remote and hybrid workers are safe or not. That’s a big problem.
IT and security teams are overwhelmed with work and conflicting priorities. They’re so busy that patching often takes a backseat until there’s an intrusion or breach. And guess what? Attackers know this. Cybercrime gangs and state-sponsored threat actors are experts at finding network weak spots that admins are completely oblivious to.
Let’s face it, complacency kills. You can’t just be sitting around, hoping everything is okay. You need to be proactive and take control of your endpoints. A shocking statistic shows that more than half of enterprises don’t even know 75% of the endpoint devices on their network. That’s a huge vulnerability waiting to be exploited.
But wait, there’s more. The complexity and time-consuming nature of patching make it even harder for IT teams, especially with the rise of remote and decentralized workspaces. It’s a constant struggle, and unfortunately, it often takes a breach or external event to get IT and security teams to take patch management seriously.
Here’s the thing, though. The dark web is full of tools and apps designed to defeat the limited security measures that remote workers have. These attackers are constantly evolving and finding new ways to exploit vulnerabilities. It’s a never-ending battle.
That’s where AI-powered patch management comes in. By automating the process and using machine learning, we can close those gaps and protect remote and hybrid workers. There are some great providers out there, like Automox, ConnectWise, and Tanium, just to name a few.
With AI, we can automate patch deployments in real time, prioritize patches based on urgency and risk, improve endpoint visibility and control, and even predict the optimal time for patching. It’s a game-changer.
But remember, this isn’t just a quick fix. It’s a mindset shift. Patch management needs to become part of the DNA of your company. Attackers are always on the lookout for weaknesses, so it’s crucial to stay one step ahead.
So, if you’re an enterprise data leader looking to take control of your endpoints and protect your remote and hybrid workers, you need to be at AI Unleashed. This event is exclusive and invite-only, so make sure you seize this opportunity to network and gain valuable insights. Don’t let complacency be your downfall.
