Video: Software Updates

On: June 14, 2017
Check out our free animation discussing the importance of prompt and regular software updates to both your employees' professional and personal lives.

Much of the world found out the hard way in May 2017 that they should always keep their software up to date. The WannaCry ransomware attack exploited Windows-powered PCs that weren’t running updated software to protect their systems.

Software updates will frequently include patches for newly discovered security vulnerabilities cybercriminals are anxious to exploit. Unfortunately, industry research suggests most people are not the best at keeping their applications up to date. A report by anti-virus company Avast found that more than 52% of the world’s most popular programs are out of date.

You likely have software updates covered with your internal corporate security patch update processes. But what about personal devices accessing your IT infrastructure? Are your employees consistently applying software updates on these and other devices outside your firewall?

Check out this animation on why software updates are so important. Watch it below, and download it for free and share with your company to help keep your organization and your people protected from cyberattacks!
