Updates for Microsoft Windows are important for a number of reasons, even more so when you are discussing the security of computers within a business setting that are part of a wider network. Enforcing these updates using Group Policy is something that the team at HBC can assist your business with, increasing the security around your business and keeping your employees as effective as possible.

Microsoft Windows Updates are required for:

  • Much Needed Security Updates – errors related to security issues could be exploited by malware or hackers and can be identified in numerous areas of Windows.
  • To Resolve Bugs and Known Issues – Bugs can seriously impact on the stability of your operating system, or be the cause of serious regular annoyance.
  • Apply New Features – As well as figuring out resolutions to bugs, updates can add new features that have been created since the last system update.

Within the Microsoft Windows Server OS, Group Policy is a feature that controls the working environment of multiple user and computer accounts. It provides a central management tool to configure operating systems, applications and settings for all users and if used correctly is a vital tool of management for the IT team looking after your company system.
