Exploring the Prevalence of Outdated Systems and Their Link to Data Breaches
Given the increasing number of endpoint devices connected to corporate networks, the complexity of cyber attacks, and the critical vulnerabilities that get patched through periodic updates, are companies adequately updating their operating systems and Internet browsers?
As cyber criminals continue to exploit outdated systems to carry out massive attacks, it has become important for companies not only to assess the number of outdated endpoints on their networks, but also the networks of their trusted third parties with access to sensitive data.
BitSight researchers examined more than 35,000 companies from over 20 industries across the world to identify the industries using outdated operating systems and Internet browsers over the last year and their correlation to data breaches.
