Beginning this month, Microsoft will only release cumulative security and performance updates for Windows 7 and 8.1, as well as Windows Server 2008 R2, Windows Server 2012, and Windows Server 2012 R2.  Individual patches will no longer be available for those operating systems.  This may impact your deployment, testing and patching procedures, so we wanted to make sure you were aware of the changes before it had any negative impact on your vulnerability management processes or your operations.
