Why is it important to update business technology?

Manual updates are time consuming, boring and ultimately pretty annoying. But take it from us, they are very important, so here are five reasons you need to keep your IT updated.

#1 Security

Keeping your devices secure is essential for your business. At Syn-Star, we know how important it is to keep your information safe and updates are a key part of achieving this. Updates repair holes and flaws in software, keeping your devices safe from viruses.

If left unrepaired, hackers can get in through these holes and flaws and can then access your information. Updates ensure this doesn’t happen.

#2 Data-protection

Going hand-in-hand with security is data protection. However, data protection is not all about you. Your own data and personal information including bank details, private photos and emails can also include your friends, families or colleagues information too.

It is vital that you keep your IT up to date in order to protect not only yourself but others around you also.

#3 New features

Lots of updates include new or enhanced features. These are often useful or helpful features that customers have requested and therefore are worthwhile having with your new download!

Updates on existing features may also ensure that these continue to run smoothly or add new elements or changes which may improve the user experience.

#4 Bugs

Some device features may become buggy if left un-updated for long enough. This can include things from aesthetic glitches or usability problems to the complete shutdown of certain tools or features, making them inaccessible.

So, if your favourite app has stopped working, or maybe you are having some small problems or performance glitches on your device then it may be worth checking for updates.

#5 Crashes

Even worse than bugs are crashes. Software updates often prevent crashes before your device has begun to experience problems. Updates often act as a preventative measure for the near or distant future in many ways.

If updates are ignored, further complications beyond just crashes could be experienced. While there are benefits such as added speed and smooth running to think about with updates too.

So, next time you think about pressing cancel or hitting that little red X on an update, then think twice and spare a couple of minutes to keep you and those around you safe.

The Syn-Star service includes all manual and automatic updates which are completed at a time that suits you. For details of our fully managed IT Support package, get in touch.
