The Importance of Patching

The end of support for Windows XP has once again raised the question of patch management.

It is vitally important to the cost-effective management of any computer network that patching be kept up to date.

In the early days this was a struggle as their was a lack of effective tools & very little consistency about when patches were released.

In today's world things have become more standardised & easier to manage.

Microsoft not only have Patch Tuesdays for releases of patches but also Windows Update Services which assists with managing the process of patching.

The consequences of not patching can be varied but all result in unscheduled downtime & therefore costs to your business.
