There are various moving parts, including systems and software, that power your accounting firm – allowing you to push the boundaries of what can be achieved on any given day. Whether you’re in the workplace or working from home, technology keeps you going with access to your confidential client data wherever you are. For many accounting firms, patch management is commonly overlooked, despite the fact that it’s critical to managing vulnerabilities within systems and software. If you’re not regularly applying updates and patches, you’re leaving vulnerabilities open to cybercriminals who are waiting to exploit them.
Above and beyond security, updates and patching are crucial to ensuring a higher level of productivity. When systems and software aren’t maintained properly, they can start lagging in terms of performance. In addition, if your systems and software programs are set-up to work with specific versions, updates are critical to ensure your entire environment works seamlessly. Otherwise, certain parts may stop working.
