we know it's very important to install the latest windows OS patch,
in virtual environment i think this is also very important, make sure we are not under zero-attack.

Hello Parker,

The statement is correct, we always recommend an up-to-date OS however in terms of what the Virtual Patching Technology means, we do not force an OS patch application to all machines from the Virtual Environment.
If the concern is strictly Security –related, what we can indeed force are security updates that we launch.

Automatic security updates come from IBM® Security X-Force using Virtual Patch® technology. The Virtual Patch process protects systems against attack during the interval between discovery of a vulnerability and the manual application of a security patch.

The Virtual Patch is an important component of the Dynamic Threat Protection platform from IBM Security. It combines vulnerability detection, intrusion protection, management, and advanced correlation tools to protect against known and unknown threats.
