The goal of the updates is to correct problems, close vulnerabilities, and improve product functionality, which is essential to the stability of an IT infrastructure in most environments. By understanding the different kinds of patches and following best practices, an IT service provider can keep clients’ critical systems free from known vulnerabilities.
