Are These 3 Challenges Holding Your Patch Implementation Back?

How many applications does your business use on a daily basis? Managing and maintaining them all can be quite the challenge for a number of reasons--particularly if your organization doesn’t have a dedicated IT technician. It’s important that you take a look at your current situation and determine what roadblocks there are that could cause problems for your organization's securty.

First, a short explanation of why patching and security updates are important. Software is often issued with considerations made for the latest cybersecurity threats. However, the current state of network security is typically fluid. New threats develop every day, which results in what is effectively a “state of emergency” for many small businesses. If patches and security updates aren’t implemented properly, you could be exposing your organization to unnecessary threats and risks. Therefore, the need to keep your software as up-to-date as possible is of the utmost importance.

We’ll go over some of the most common roadblocks that are presented with software deployment:

Upper-Level Administration
It’s understandable for upper-level executives, like the CEO and COO, to want a say in the implementation of security solutions for your IT. However, if all options for technology must be run through administration, it’s difficult to get anything greenlit. When it comes to patching, you don’t have time to wait around for this to happen, as threats could be knocking at your door.

Software Developers
It’s important that you remain in contact with the company that develops any software you use. The reasoning is simple: they will be the ones to distribute any software patches, as they will be the ones developing it in the first place. If they aren’t effectively communicating that a new version or patch is available for download, you’re running the risk of threats overtaking your system.

Time and Resources
If you don’t have an internal IT department, chances are that you are having your employees deploy patches and security updates as they are released. However, they are only implemented if you have the time and resources to make it happen. Furthermore, if they are deployed, they could be implemented incorrectly, which means that the patches would have to be installed twice--wasting valuable time and money which could be saved for other ventures.

By working closely with a managed service provider, you can eliminate many of these troubles with remote patching and maintenance. We’ll work directly with your software vendors, should the need arise, to make sure your patches are implemented as swiftly and efficiently as possible. Thanks to remote technology, all of this can be done without an on-site visit, freeing up more time and resources than ever before--all while making security a top priority for your business.
