Home Office does u-turn on Internet Explorer 6 – Will this become a domino effect? | TechEye

 

 

Internet Explorer 8 IE logo v The Home Office has made an important step forward here, and should be applauded for committing to move from IE6 to IE8, and I hope that other departments follow suit.

The challenge of course is that any software component needs to be maintained and updated, as well as on the latest version, to maximise the assurance that one can place in software.

The advantages of  having the capability to keep software updates in current, also produces other business benefits beyond the assurance and reliability of the software in question. It also enables the IT organisation to rapidly make changes to support business needs. New applications can be deployed more rapidly and updated using the same kinds of infrastructure investment, changing a “defensive” investment into one that promotes genuine agility in an organisation.

Staying “current” and staying updated is probably one of the most important tools that a security professional can use in mitigating the potential threats that are present in the internet today.
