IT organizations are searching for a more efficient approach that enables quicker deployment of security patches while ensuring the safety and productivity of their critical assets.

This white paper describes how Vulnerability Assessment and Virtual Patching can help customers to quickly and transparently address known database vulnerabilities without deploying physical patches or custom scripts on corporate databases. Thus, organizations can minimize the window of exposure created by the need to build, receive, test and deploy software and operating system patches across a wide array of database platforms and instances.
