Stay ahead of the bad actors. Install regular updates to keep your systems safe.
Out-of-date software to online hackers is like an unlocked door to burglars. It allows them easy access to your valuable and personal information without you knowing. This includes taking your data or taking control of your entire system. Applying updates is the most important step you can take to keep your data and systems safe.
Update a Yale-managed device
If you have an ITS-managed Windows or Mac computer, updates are simple. The managed device program automatically applies software updates.
Unsure if you have an ITS-managed computer enrolled in auto-updates? No problem, contact your local support provider or the ITS Help Desk for assistance.
Update a self-managed or personal device
Do you use a Yale-owned device that doesn’t automatically update or that you’ve purchased on your own? These devices also need regular software updates to keep your data and systems safe.
Get started with updating your personal or unmanaged devices by using the links below.
How to update your devices
Some updates may require you to restart your computer before you are protected.
Product end of life
All good things come to an end, including the software and operating systems we know and love. Companies may stop supporting their older products to make room for new ones.
Breaking up ain’t easy. Soften the blow by:
- Upgrading to a newer version of the product.
- Contacting your local support provider or the ITS Help Desk to discuss options.
