Microsoft is ready to abandon the longstanding patching schedule that saw patches and security updates being delivered on the second Tuesday of every month. With the advent of Windows 10, security updates and other software innovations will be pushed to PCs, tablets and phones as soon as they are ready.
In this podcast recorded at Infosecurity Europe 2015, Wolfgang Kandek, CTO at Qualys, talks about what comes next after the death of Patch Tuesday. Windows 10 encourages the idea of continuous patching, and we learn what that means for individual users and enterprises.
In the enterprise space, Windows Update for Business will still allow organizations to control the patching process. They’ll be able to package patches together, test them in their environment, and roll them out in a controlled environment.
