again because they do patch management instead of vulnerability management.

And that distinction is becoming less and less important.

For large companies and networks, I think we're going to see it all fall under the guise of asset management eventually. Sort of a 'what do we have, where is it and how secure is it' type of deal.

People that do only patch management are going to come upon harder times, as will companies that do only vulnerability management. We can already see the beginning; just look at mergers, acquisitions and lay-offs in the computer security industry.

(ethical disclaimer: I work for a company in the vulnerability management space)
