We lovingly refer to this section as our “Tips and Tricks” section, so this week it’ll be more of a general tip than an Alert trick. But it’s important so bear with us!
We want to stress the best practice of keeping your system up-to-date. Usually when we say this kind of thing, we’re referring to keeping your Alert system updated. And that’s super important! With every release, we not only give you a bucket of new features, but we squash those bugs you find for us.
This tip is more system-wide. We suggest that you keep your operating system and your anti-virus software up to date. Even if you’re running Alert EasyVault, it still takes a little time (and hassle) to get your system back up and running if you succumb to a vulnerability. For example, Microsoft released this important patch to update your security a couple months ago:
This addressed some terrifying-sounding attack protocol and we’d sure rest easier knowing that all of you keep your systems updated.
