Security- Application patching. 

I’m Albert Steed with Advanced Computer Solutions talking about small business security kind of progressing from antivirus to Microsoft’s patching, so your OS and maybe your Office tools, Excel and Word.  

We also implement another patching protocol and that's program called Ninite. Ninite is a third-party patching program that goes out and grabs patches for a whole host of applications that maybe running on your computers and keeps them up-to-date and applies security patches.  

For all of our managed clients, they have access to Ninite and Ninite is running to push out those patches so that our clients have as many vulnerability fills as possible or as quickly as possible. So you’ve got patch management and then you’ve got Ninite working on the background for your third-party applications and that sits on top of the antivirus and that is the third layer of security that we provide.  

And the third thing that I would recommend to anybody is go get a third-party patching tool to push out as many patches and keep your software as up-to-date as possible.  

Again, I’m Albert Steed with Advanced Computer Solutions. Thanks for listening!
