Why You Shouldn’t Be Skipping Them For Later........

software update electronic device display concept 2021 08 26 23 58 47 utcThe typical inclination is to put it off until the next time you log into your device, at which point it gets put off again. We've all had that moment when we're on an essential call or need to respond to an urgent email and determine that a system upgrade isn't worth the effort. But did you know that it is critical to keep your computer's operating system up to date? This is true not only for computers, but also for mobile phones, iPads, and other tablets. In reality, upgrades for many software packages and apps must also be loaded.

System and application providers such as Microsoft, Apple, and Adobe, among others, deliver security updates and patches virtually every month, and often more than once.

What are the benefits of installing these patches/system updates?

Safety and security of your data

Cybercriminals are continuously on the search for software vulnerabilities in order to get access to your IT network or system. Vendors, on the other hand, have teams who are always looking for such flaws and working on generating security updates that plug these gaps, ensuring that your device/network remains safe and secure. Skipping system/software updates might expose you to cyber threats and jeopardize the safety and security of your data.

Ensures your device is working at its best

Aside from security patches, there may be bug fixes and enhancements issued as part of the software/system upgrade. 
If you do not apply bug fixes and enhancements, your device may not work optimally and may crash or slow down. 
It may potentially cause compatibility difficulties with other programs or applications.
It may be challenging to keep up with software updates, security patches, and upgrades as a corporation and deploy them throughout your whole organization. 
A service level agreement with an MSP ensures that all of your corporate devices are up to date, patched, and secure.
