Securing the Unpatchable

How to Prevent Security Breaches on Endpoints When Patching Is Not an Option

This document presents two case studies that discuss the security, risk and compliance ramifications of operating unpatchable systems and applications:

  1. Microsoft® Internet Explorer®
  2. Legacy Windows® Operating Systems (e.g., Windows XP, Windows 8)

The case studies outline the core attack vectors that threat actors can use to compromise unpatchable systems and applications and offer a technical solution that eliminates the reliance on vulnerability patches as a security measure while preventing breaches on the endpoints that operate those unpatchable systems and applications.
