    Over the years I have been asked a curious question numerous times. 'If we use product x or solution y we wouldn't have to patch anymore, right?" At this point in the conversation I would often sit back in my seat and try to look like I was giving their question a lot of thought. The reality was more pragmatic. I was trying very hard to stifle my screams while appearing considerate of their query.

    Let's be honest with ourselves. No one likes to apply patches. If that were the opposite I have little doubt that we would have far fewer data breaches than we read about in the news these days. I'm sure that there is a mythical unicorn out there that simply lives for this sort of activity. I will be entirely honest when I say that I have never met this person.
