BOSTON, MA -- (Marketwire) -- 11/14/12 -- Aberdeen Group, a Harte-Hanks Company (NYSE: HHS), today announced the publication of new research reports from its IT Security, Networking and Application Performance, and Customer Management research practices.
In "The Virtues of Virtual Patching" Derek Brink Vice President and Research Fellow for the Aberdeen Group's IT Security research practice writes about approaches for managing vulnerabilities and threats to IT infrastructure -- which for many organizations consumes a significant portion of limited IT resources, and painfully distracts from projects aimed at innovation and growth. The strategic deployment of selected compensating controls, such as virtual patching, can provide a kind of protective shield that effectively buys the organization more time to assess, plan, test and remediate vulnerabilities and threats -- a potentially attractive alternative to the value-sucking activities of Patch Tuesdays, emergency patches and workarounds, endless testing, and unplanned downtime.

"Real-Time Approaches to Defusing Ticking Performance Time-bombs," authored by Jim Rapoza, Senior Research Analyst for the Aberdeen Networking and Application Performance research practice, looks at the steps companies are taking to address performance in real-time, the benefits they are gaining from this approach, and makes recommendations on the steps that other organizations can take in order to start dealing with application performance problems as they happen. A focus on real-time performance management can mean the difference between an application being down or performing poorly for hours (or days) or having the issue addressed immediately. By looking at performance from a real-time perspective, businesses are able to not only ensure higher levels of application uptime and performance; they are also able to more effectively leverage other leading capabilities of performance management.
