Are you tired of manually updating your software each time a developer releases a new version? There is an easy solution. Automate your software updates! IT-related issues can be resolved through extensive research or IT support, but updating software can solve the problem.
With cybersecurity becoming an increasing issue, knowing how to keep your software updated can improve your computer’s security and performance. Cybercriminals can penetrate over 93 percent of company networks. An external cybercriminal can breach a network’s perimeter and gain control of the surrounding grids.
Automated Software Updates
A software update is a change, tweak, or correction to programming. Software updates mainly address security vulnerabilities in the product. These updates typically contain bug fixes or product improvements. Once a software update has been developed, the software is released to the public. One of the easiest ways to ensure your system is not vulnerable to attack is to program automatic software updates.
Programming Your Software
Are you tired of yet another icon or pop-up message on your system bar indicating a new update is available? Automatic updates enable users to have the latest version of the software. An operating system is the core program used to manage the hardware and program interactions. Automating these updates frees up time and effort, allowing users to have the latest iteration of the software without having to check and manually update. Not updating the software may impose a negative impact on the functionality of a device.
Reasons Why You Need To Update NOW!
As technology advances, software updates are essential to keep up with demands. Regardless of your business field, a security breach can signal business destruction. With outdated software, your systems are particularly vulnerable to malware attacks. The many different kinds of malware: computer viruses, keyloggers, spyware, trojan horses, etc., constantly evolve, and software updates address new strains. Therefore, software updates are critical.
For most updates, automation is as simple as:
- Go to your Settings
- Find the Software Updates icon
- Click on the check mark or box that indicates that you will automatically keep your device up-to-date
Some software programs disable automatic updates. You should check back occasionally to confirm that updates have been installed through the automation.
