By 2021, the estimated annual cost of worldwide cybercrime damages will be $6 trillion. You’ve seen the headlines—the average cost of a data breach in 2016 was $4 million—many companies never recover.
The U.S. Department of Homeland Security advises, “It is necessary for all organizations to establish a strong ongoing patch management process to ensure the proper preventative measures are taken against potential threats.”
Oracle continues to periodically receive reports of attempts to maliciously exploit vulnerabilities for which Oracle has already released fixes. In some instances, it has been reported that attackers have been successful because targeted customers had failed to apply available Oracle patches. Oracle therefore strongly recommends that customers remain on actively-supported versions and apply Critical Patch Update fixes without delay.
Oracle Support is the best way to legally receive mission critical security updates and protection for your Oracle Software. Because Oracle creates and owns the source code, we can address vulnerabilities and emerging threats in the source code. As an Oracle Premier Support customer you have access to security bulletins and reliable, quarterly Critical Patch Updates to the source code.
When your business is on the line, there is no substitute for trusted, secure, and comprehensive.
Don’t become a cybercrime statistic.
