This white paper outlines the limitations of traditional defence mechanisms; specifically how cybercriminals have refined the malware manufacturing and development process to systematically bypass them – thereby initiating an arms race with defenders. Security patches are found to be a primary and effective means to escape this arms race as they remediate the root cause of compromise. However, timely patching of the software portfolio of any organisation is like chasing a continually moving target.
