1Outdated OSes, Unpatched Browsers Expose Companies to Risk
Users around the world continue to run older operating systems and unpatched software applications. That was one of the findings of Duo Security’s 2017 Trusted Access Report, released on June 5. The report, which provides insight into the security status of 4.6 million devices that Duo Security helps to manage, found that although Windows 7 has already been superseded by Windows 10, it remains the most widely deployed version of Microsoft’s operating system. On the mobile side, the majority of Android users are not running devices with the latest patches. Adobe’s Flash is also a problem, with 53 percent of endpoints analyzed by Duo Security running out-of-date and vulnerable versions. In this slide show, eWEEK looks at some of the highlights of the 2017 Trusted Access Report.
