50% of IT pros find themselves overwhelmed by patch volume

From SC Magazine

"Half of IT professionals are having a hard time keeping up with enterprise patching.

Dimensional Research and Tripwire's Vulnerability and Exposure Research Team (VERT) studied 480 IT pros involved in patch management and assessed enterprise patch volume and installation trends.

Patch management is critical for lowering security risk for enterprise IT systems, however half of the respondents find it difficult to keep up with or feel overwhelmed with the amount of patches.

Half of respondents feel that client-side patches are released at an unmanageable rate. 50% also feel that their IT teams don't comprehend the difference between applying a patch and fixing a vulnerability.

Sometimes, 67% say, they don't understand which patch needs to be applied to which system. 86% said that embedded products such as Adobe Flash patches released with Google Chrome updates make it more difficult to understand the impact of a patch.”
