Cybercriminals are moving too quickly for businesses to keep up



Many businesses can’t keep up with the speed at which cybercriminals exploit the vulnerabilities they find. Even though there’s usually a short window of opportunity between an exploit being discovered and it getting patched, malicious actors are quite good at using that window and wreaking havoc.

This is according to a new paper released by tech giants HP based on data aggregated from its Wolf Security suite. It analyzed “billions of attachments, web pages, and downloads with no reported breaches” to understand the behavior of malware in the wild, and found that the average time for a business to apply, test, and fully deploy a patch, with the proper checks is 97 days.
