Microsoft Does Some Patching Off Schedule

Posted by on in Security

b2ap3_thumbnail_bug_227825458_400.jpgTo keep your business’ network free from threats, and to keep your software working effectively, patching the software it uses is extremely important. The reason is that the threat landscape is always evolving. Recently, Microsoft announced that they have released an emergency out-of-band security update to fix two security issues, an atypical act for the software giant. 

b2ap3_thumbnail_update_patches_important_400.jpgWhen you get a new device, you’re getting more than just the physical device and whatever software is currently installed on it. You’re also getting any updates and patches that the manufacturer and software developers release. However, many users neglect to incorporate these key improvements. Today, we’ll go over why updates and patches are so crucial.

These terms are used often, and you may be confused as to what they really mean, and how they relate to you and the security of your business’ data.
