Patching Compliance with  KACE Cloud Companion

Would you reduce the number of potential cyber breaches by 60% if you could?

According to the Cost and Consequences of Gaps in Vulnerability Response Report by Ponemon Institute, “Nearly 60% of cyber-attack victims said installing an available patch would have prevented their breach, and 39% said they knew about a vulnerability before an attack occurred -- but never fixed it.”
