You might hear people talk about user account or Active Directory. Being said that, they refer to Microsoft Active Directory software that organizes and provides access to information in an operation system’s directory. It is a link between users (account and the computer) and data storage (customer’s database, inventory, accounting system). Active Directory helps you organize your company’s users, computer and more. Arina Technologies Inc. will help to organize your company’s complete hierarchy from which computers belong to which network, to what your profile picture looks like or which users have access to the storage room.
Why do you need Software Updates?
OS Software updates, in many cases referred to as patches, are released for a variety of reasons. There are few subcategories of patches. The patch will upgrade a part of the software to the latest version with new features in it. The second type of patch update will improve an application’s stability. The third type of patch will update a bug or security hole within the program. It is this last type of update is the most important when it comes to computer security.
Should you patch all system?
Installing system and software updates are the best practice to protect your business intellectual property against the most common viruses and malware. Software vendors often release updates to address specific security threats that have come to their attention. By downloading and installing the system and software updates, you patch the vulnerabilities that hackers will try to exploit and infect your computer.
Did you check if your OS still supported?
Just because your OS is still running doesn’t mean that you receive latest updates. Both Apple and Microsoft stop providing updates for older operating systems. Microsoft no longer provides updates for Windows XP, Vista, 8.X, 7 and Apple does not provide updates for early versions of OS X. If the software vendor is no longer providing updates for a particular operating system, then that operating system becomes more dangerous for your business every day you continue to use it. If a new vulnerability emerges, an update to remove the vulnerability may never be released. Hackers know this and use it to their advantage, often preying on computers that are not just behind on a few updates, but computers still running an unsupported operating system. Therefore, it is important that you are running the latest operating system, one that is still receiving updates.

How do you update the OS?
Both Windows and Apple release regular updates that require you to take little or no action in order to install them. Windows OS will install security updates with no interaction and will let you know that reboot required and Apple OS X will pop up a message saying that there are updates available. All you have to do is click a few times to install the update.
What about the other applications?
Apple and Microsoft improving their operating systems with patches, but certain applications also need to be updated. In reality, some applications and software, such as Adobe Flash, Adobe Acrobat, and Microsoft Office, also important to keep up-to-date as the operating system. When these applications receive updates, make sure you install them right away. If you haven’t used a particular application for a long time, there’s a chance you’ll have at least a few software updates that need to be installed before using the program. You should also check for updates right away if you open an old application for the first time in a long time.
