Updating Your Server for SecurityA look at updates and server security.
Course descriptionWhen we install new devices or software, they need to be updated and checked for any tampering. Tampering with a device driver can introduce malware onto a server and spread to the entire network. Maintaining a server through updating is also very important: not only does it fix bugs and add features, but it protects against any new vulnerabilities discovered.
