Rebooting Your Servers Is Making You Insecure and Noncompliant

Learn why such “best practices” as server maintenance windows or reboot cycles are actually putting your infrastructure at risk of incompliance and what are the ways to overcome this challenge.

Talking Points

Traditionally, kernel patching required server reboots.
Rebooting is a headache and a hassle that is often repeatedly put off. But every day that a vulnerability is discovered and not patched is another day when you are at risk.This risk window can leave your infrastructure vulnerable, non-compliant, and at risk of potential malpractice.
Industry best practice is a maximum of around 30 days for kernel patching, but waiting until the scheduled maintenance window to reboot servers can see months of delays.
Learn why this is unsustainable, and how this can be addressed.
