The dangers of not upgrading ageing infrastructure
January 23, 2019 / IT News Africa
It’s the dawn of a new year and we’ve all made resolutions to update our health, our lives and even our jobs. An important consideration for new years resolutions is the inclusion of a commitment to update IT infrastructure. Outdated IT infrastructure can pose massive problems for businesses, as highlighted in the news last year. The reality is that many businesses still rely on ageing hardware and outdated software and find it harder to keep up with the swift changes in technology. Another problem with ageing IT infrastructure is that it is more vulnerable to cyber attack. Some companies may even still be using IT infrastructure that has reached end of support, meaning that any patches for new vulnerabilities are not going to be received or updated.
