Availability is part of Security

September 19, 2009 — Leave a comment

Every day one of my computers complains about something…it might be my  trusty laptop or one of the various desktops running mission critical systems for my business.  Sometimes  it’s malware, other times it’s buggy updates automatically downloaded to my system.  So what’s the solution?  You can turn off auto updates on the OS, but at some point you have to test and load some of them if you’re to keep up with security advice that says, “patch you system”.  Me, I just couldn’t take it any more, so I’ve purchased my first Mac.  I’ll keep you posted, but so far, this is turning out to be the best security move I’ve ever made.  I wonder how many support dollars are being made just because Vista doesn’t really work.
