Today is Microsofts Patch Tuesday for March 2014

This month’s round of Microsoft Patch Tuesday updates includes urgent fixes for most versions of Windows and all versions of Internet Explorer to fix a critical security flaw.  Also included are important patches for all Windows machines and even some Macs!  In addition, Adobe released a critical security update to its Flash Player software.

We recommend that everyone’s computer be set to download software updates automatically.  However, many times users have to manually reboot their computers to finish the installation process of Microsoft updates, or with Adobe or Java updates, manually allow for installation of the downloaded updates.

These security updates are of critical importance to computer users because they are generally fixing problems that cyber criminals are currently using to infect computers.

In addition, its important for users to uninstall old versions of Adobe Flash Player and Java.  Just having the latest patch isnt enough, you must get rid of the older versions to fully experience the additional level of protection from the flaws cyber criminals are using.

If you dont want to worry about all of this, our managed services platform handles all this for you!  For just $15.99 a month per computer, we also provide real time monitoring of the health of your PC, perform regular preventative maintenance and install a best in class Internet security package to keep you safe from cyber criminals.  Think of it as peace of mind for your technology!  To set up a complimentary technology assessment, call us today at 913/730-6262.
