Central management software or firmware developers launch updates regularly (as do hardware suppliers). Users who don’t update their software are no longer supported and don’t receive any more bug fixes or security updates. This increases the security risk. If you want to expand your existing security system with new hardware, you also run the risk that this hardware is only compatible with the latest software standards. So updating your software regularly is very important.
Luckily, updating software is usually not very complex. At Mactwin, we typically do this remotely as a standard part of our Software Assurance contracts. Before a software update is executed, we check if the latest software is compatible with all linked systems and components. If not, we will also need to update these components – before we update the software.
