What is Third-Party Patching?
Third-party patching is an essential aspect of cybersecurity that many organizations often overlook. Cybercriminals often exploit vulnerabilities in popular software like Adobe, Firefox, and Chrome to launch cyberattacks. Thus, it is crucial to keep these applications up-to-date to reduce the risk of cyber threats. However, updating your operating system alone won’t resolve patching.

Why is third-party patching so important?
According to the *2021 Data Breach investigations Report by Verizon, 85% of data breaches involved a human element and 61% involved the use of stolen or weak credentials. Additionally, the report found that 39% of data breaches were initiated through web applications.
These statistics highlight the importance of keeping software applications up-to-date and patched to reduce the risk of cyberattacks. Unpatched vulnerabilities in operating systems and applications can be easily exploited by cybercriminals to gain access to sensitive data and systems.
