How Patching Thwarts Cyber Attackers

How Patching Thwarts Cyber Attackers

At SecurityScorecard, we analyzed open vulnerabilities across the entire Internet.

Here are some of our shocking discoveries:

  • 53% of organizations have an internal exposed vulnerability (and some have a LOT of them).
  • 20% of organizations have 1-10 vulnerabilities.
  • 26% have 11-100.
  • Over 22% of organizations have thousands of vulnerabilities.

Furthermore, on average, it takes these organizations a year to fix 50% of the vulnerabilities.

That's why hackers often have the upper hand.


Build a mature program that:

  • tracks your attack surfaces
  • patches vulnerabilities in time
