Symantec reported it as a zero-day attack.

Others said that the latest version of the player fixed the problem. IT department was confused, and the stakes were high. Flash player sits on a lot of corporate machines. Luckily, the exploit turned out not to be a zero-day attack, and the latest version of the player was immune. But it highlights some interesting questions for IT departments in so far as Desktop Management is concerned. How do they decide whether to patch a desktop vulnerability? How do they know what the patch should be? How do they get it out to remote machines? How do you patch machines that are always roaming? If a patch is not available, what should they do? What inventory do they have? How do you lock down a desktop? How do you distribute applications across thousands of desktops? How do you ensure that Power Management is enabled? Most importantly software is optimally used across organization?

All of the decisions around desktop management rely on having visibility into what version of operating system or Office application devices have, and what other software could be installed that could conflict with patches that you want to deploy. Solution Allied Digital Services then deployed its Remote Desktop Management Solution for this organization to tackle all of the challenges. The onboarding of 5700 desktops across 18 locations and three continents took exactly 15 days to complete. At the end of this period an accurate Inventory count was given to the IT Department. This was very close to the procurement figure

indicated by their procurement department. Since then 310 patches have been deployed across all desktops. About 26 applications across their network were uninstalled to meet the license compliance challenge faced by the organization. More than 6 versions of 3 different in-house developed applications were deployed across the desktops. Lync Software was deployed across their network with a success rate of 99.2%. Allied Digital was instrumental in saving a whooping 300,000 USD by harvesting Microsoft Licenses across their desktops. Targeted Multi-casting technology was used to deploy above patches and applications so as to ensure that traffic on the network did not increase. Last but not the least, enabled VPro technology on more than 1300 desktops and TVT Technology from Lenovo on 300 Laptops. Conclusion Today the customer is very happy in terms of Security of Desktop Infrastructure. They have latest Patch Deployment status. Efforts on Software distribution have reduced many folds.
