THE END IS COMING: WINDOWS 7 & SERVER 2008
On January 14, 2020, Microsoft will end its support for Windows 7 and Server 2008. Just because support is ending, doesn’t mean you have to stop using it altogether. However, it also doesn’t mean you should continue using it. Here’s why:
WHAT IF YOU DON’T MAKE THE MOVE AWAY FROM WINDOWS 7 AND SERVER 2008?
Businesses who remain on Windows 7 and Server 2008 will have:
- No technical support
- No software updates
- No security updates
WHAT DOES THIS MEAN FOR SECURITY?
Without the upgrade, your company’s systems will be left vulnerable to cyber threats. Operating systems and servers need to be continuously updated in order to stay secure. Without it, cybercriminals have a front door entrance right into your system. Hackers are well aware of the risks that come with not updating Windows 7 as the end of life date approaches. Don’t fall victim to them!
It may seem like you are saving money now by not upgrading, but this can lead to much bigger and more expensive problems down the line. Technology is constantly changing, so it’s important to keep your business and system up to date. Proactive support is crucial in order to resolve IT issues before they become a problem.
WHAT DO YOU NEED TO DO?
Now that you are aware that Windows 7 and Server 2008 will not be a safe product to use after January 14, 2020, it’s time to make a plan and start preparing your business to get upgraded. What exactly should you do to get that done? For starters, it’s recommended to use an IT professional to make sure everything is working properly and upgraded correctly.
