Microsoft Windows Zero-Day Vulnerabilities Attack and Impact, continue to draw market awareness, due to the fact, they remain the most used and absolute market leader in the operating system. If you are the offensive hacker, are you targeting the over 80% market share operating system or someone will lesser? The logic behind it is still relevant.
Same goes for the buyer consideration, being in the large market share, so did for sure without being left behind, as more suppliers end mobilizing resources to get zero-day vulnerabilities patch develop, this is how the market is operated. For those deployed Microsoft commercial product Microsoft Defender for Endpoint (MDE), may be able to use it to track zero-days vulnerabilities and status for being patch under threat and vulnerability management. It is an enterprise endpoint security platform designed to help enterprise networks prevent, detect, investigate, and respond to advanced threats.
Leverage the largest Windows installed base, as Microsoft also provides the threat and vulnerability management, and directly compete with those who are in the field. This signal for the endpoint protection platform (EPP) movement that long before the industry is expected for long. For those who possess the endpoint market share, it is more easy to be positioned in the market, as threat and vulnerability management being one of the cybersecurity domains. If you recall how the previous personal firewall technology being digested and becoming part of the modern common technologies absorbed under respective domain fields, this is expected to be the case for the industry will be the same for the near future.
Back to zero-days vulnerabilities or also written as 0-days vulnerabilities, refer to a class of vulnerability for which no official patches or security updates have been released, due to no way to defend until it really has been patched, it has high severity levels and are actively exploited. Typically for scenarios like that, usually an interim solution will be deployed as a temporary solution to block any attempt to leverage the vulnerability until a permanent patch exists and is deployed. Some time for the patching, it creates another new vulnerability so it always needs to monitor closely to make sure the whole vulnerability has been tracked from discovery to patched cycle.
Typical in the enterprise context, the largest it is, the likelihood be organize and have someone incharge for the cybersecurity, or even sub divide into more specialization function such as threat and vulnerability management, or information security, where perform routine vulnerability scanning and tracking of the vulnerability, and carry out for the various vulnerability risk mitigation action. Depending on the setup, some make use of one or more commercial vulnerability scanners and ethical hacking and penetration testing tools and systems to scan and exploit in the enterprise asset to make sure they understand the current cyber exposure and carry out what is needed.
