Is your firmware up to date? How can you be sure?

While it’s relatively easy to keep track of your system’s software and hardware, making sure that you are running the most current version of your firmware can be tricky.

You might think that firmware is just a small component or tiny part of your otherwise sophisticated devices. Maybe you are wondering if it’s even necessary to stay up to date at all. After all, things are running fine. How big an issue can it be?

The reality is that having the latest version is about more than accessing exciting new features. Through bug fixes and improvements in technology, updated firmware is important for ensuring the safety of your physical security system as a whole.

What’s at stake?

With the expansion of the Internet of Things (IoT), an under-protected device can quickly become the vulnerable attack surface that cybercriminals are looking to exploit. When the firmware on a single video surveillance camera is out of date, you can miss important advancements that are designed to protect both the camera and, by extension, your entire system. So how do you keep this from happening? Upgrade to Security Center 5.7.

How we can help 

Security Center 5.7 allows you to keep your ecosystem of devices up to date and secure. By collecting updates and new version information from partner release notes, websites, and other sources, we are creating a database of the most recent firmware for supported devices.
