Upgrades are provided as installable packages with step-by-step installation instructions in the online technical documentation. Additionally, our Support Policy allows universities and organizations to request for a SAM technician to upgrade on-site installations directly.


Security Updates

Similar to software upgrades, security updates may be downloaded and installed by your own technicians. Security updates will be released immediately upon discovery of new exploits or vulnerabilities in existing open-source frameworks and languages such as Apache, PHP, Python, Java, MySQL, and so on. Purchasing our Support Policy allows universities and organizations to request for a SAM technician to integrate security updates into on-site installations directly.

Note that all universities and organizations who have deployed on-site installations and have an active Software License will be contacted by a SAM representative immediately upon release of each and every Security Update, regardless of whether or not they also have purchased Support Policy .
