You probably know that Equifax, one of the major credit reporting agencies was breached, due to a flaw in “Apache Struts”. This attack has impacted roughly 145.5 million people, potentially exposing their personal data to the world.

The truth behind the Equifax Security breach is; it could have been easily avoided. In fact it’s as simple as, if Equifax would have kept their servers up-to-date with current patches, the breach would not have occurred. But, Equifax is not the only company that has failed to patch their servers when a known security flaw was left unpatched. You may recall the Yahoo breaches from 2013, 2014, but weren’t discovered until 2016. Let’s be honest, when there are a lot of moving parts keeping things up-to-date is a logistics nightmare, missing one item can be all it takes to leave yourself open to attack. The good news is there are solutions to this. Patching your environment not only protects your business, but it protects your customers data as well.
