Windows Server 2012 R2 Essentials and other small business networks all require patching to ensure that you stay up to date with the various security patches and therefore remain as secure as possible given the various attack vectors that hackers will take. The default settings on PCs and servers mean that they might patch dependant on what the users do with these settings. As the administrators of small business network solutions, we need to ensure that we have some level of control over the machines in an effort to ensure they are patched regularly.
Starting next week, I’ll be doing a series of blog posts that will help you configure your small business network to be patched on a regular basis. The aim will be to simplify this and give us back central levels of control if needed for patching our networks.
Stay tuned for article 1 on Monday.
