Software Updates

We’ve all been working on our computers and gotten those irritating little pop-ups demanding we install an update for something or other. Turns out those updates are actually pretty important, even more so when you’re running a website.

Content Management Systems

Static websites are a thing of the past. Today’s more dynamic sites are powered by a combination of software known as a CMS, Content Management System. This use of ever-changing software in different combinations means a constantly changing software database.

Security Updates

If websites are not updated regularly, they’re left open to hacking at best, defacement or total destruction at worst. Keeping your software updated is a critical step in keeping your site secure (not to mention running properly). When security threats are identified, software developers write patches and fixes to close program vulnerabilities. These patches are sent out as software updates. That’s right; that annoying pop-up is actually a vital protection against security breach. Who knew!

Happier Software

Not only do those updates fix possible security issues, they also keep software functioning properly. Not a single piece of software in use has been released without a glitch or two; sometimes developers don’t see it until it’s out in the general population and being used by tons of people. Delivering any fixes via software updates is the easiest way to keep various versions current, both with the latest software release and to keep up with the latest technology.

How Managed Services Help

Although you now have a better understanding of why it’s important to keep up with your software updates, that doesn’t mean you suddenly have the time to take care of it. This is another place where managed hosting services come in handy. Your hosting provider will take care of all your software updates, patches, and fixes for you so you won’t have to worry about them. With your software running properly, your site will operate the way it should and security risks will be minimized. Your provider’s staff will have immediate access to the latest updates, and trained IT professionals will take care of installing and maintaining them.

Changing Software, Changing Technology

Technology is changing at such a ridiculously rapid pace, it’s pretty much impossible for anyone not immersed in the IT field to keep up. Just staying informed is a full-time job. You have other things to do with your time, like actually running your business and living your life. Turn the updates and maintenance over to a virtual hosting server. They’re better equipped to stay on top of your software, and better equipped to stay informed. It is their actual job, after all.
