What is the big deal about Patch Management?

What is a Patch? A patch is an update to a piece of softw

are to fix or improve the usability or performance. Patch updates come out daily, weekly, and monthly; they keep your systems up to date and safe; without those downloaded correctly you could be opening up your system to hackers. Hackers target websites and implement their code into the website in hopes that you as the website visitor do not have all of your programs up to date. With our Managed Service Software we can make sure that all of your software is automatically updated daily. We remotely monitor your system and if a problem arises, we can squash it before it renders your computer useless.

There are a lot of small businesses that choose to do maintenance on a quarterly basis; people think that they are keeping their systems up to date when they are actually leaving an open door in their security that allows tons of threats and viruses to walk right in. Patch updates and basic web security are a big portion of preventativ

e maintenance that business owners do not think about but should be aware of when coming up with a tech plan for their employees.  A lot of the time they have security software installed and they think that they have nothing to worry about, as time goes on they do not realize that their subscription has expired, or that it is not installed correctly which can lead to data breaches that will cost you big time. To prepare for these events, it is very handy to have someone monitoring your security settings and updates to make sure they are running as planned; here at KNS we are a Managed Service Provider (MSP) and through our software we monitor your computers and servers remotely; if a threat gets into your computer, we get an instant notification and can remedy the situation. This gives you, as a business owner, piece of mind.
