Filter access to the affected computer at the network boundary if global access isn't needed. Restricting access to only trusted computers and networks might greatly reduce the likelihood of a successful exploit.
Deploy network intrusion detection systems to monitor network traffic for malicious activity.
Deploy NIDS to monitor network traffic for suspicious activity such unexplained incoming and outgoing traffic. This may indicate exploit attempts or activity that results from a successful exploit.
Implement multiple redundant layers of security.
Consider using additional tools to further restrict access for the vulnerable applications via access control security policies.
