It’s something most of us don’t think about very often, if we do at all. Some people don’t know much about it at all other than mentions in the news, but it’s as important to the day-to-day operations of your business as keeping your employees’ passwords safe.
Here at TrueIT, not only do we think about patch management daily, we take the worry about it off our client’s minds by taking care of it automatically every client we work for, big and small. Patches for Microsoft, Adobe, Google, and many others are sent out often, which is why we work with our clients to establish weekly maintenance windows to allow for them to be fully installed and our clients to remain up to date. Critical patches, such as those implicated in various major hacks in the last year, are installed as soon as possible after they are released to ensure our clients remain safe and secure. It’s part of our pro-active approach to technology management.
Wondering why we put so much thought every day into something most users of technology don’t see? Look no further than the recent disaster at Equifax caused by their failure to install a highly-critical patch on their system for two months.
