End of life for Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008. How this will put your business at risk.

Microsoft has publicly announced January 14, 2020, as the end date for extended support, also known as End of Life (EOL), for the Windows 7 operating system. As of this date, Microsoft will no longer produce any patches or updates to address known or otherwise newly discovered issues for the Windows 7 platform. This potentially exposes users of devices with the Windows 7 operating system to vulnerabilities that could potentially be exploited by threat actors—exploits, bugs, viruses, and ransomware. So, if you’re one of the 40% of global organizations still using Windows 7 as your main operating system*, we’d like to help you successfully migrate off of Windows 7.

Operating System End of life date
Windows 7 January 14th 2020
Windows Server 2008 January 14th 2020
Office 2010 October 13th 2020

 

Prepare and Plan

We will conduct an audit of your technology assets to determine if there are Windows 7 devices and other soon-to- be-unsupported hardware or software components in use. To migrate successfully, devices need to have a minimum hardware specification to run Windows 10 at a productive level. We’ll provide a detailed report showing you which devices are running Windows 7, how old they are and if replacing or upgrading is the right strategy.

How you Benefit

Our top priority with this migration is to minimize security vulnerabilities and help you avoid major downtime. We appreciate that this introduces change in your organization and requires
an investment of both time and money. We can help you with educating your employees to help minimize any disruption and make recommendations so you can make the best decision— upgrade or replace—for your business outlining the costs and implications of both scenarios.

Microsoft plans to make Windows 10 the ‘last’ Windows. You won’t ever need to upgrade to a new operating system again. Incremental updates will happen behind the scenes without major upheaval and with no costly and difficult upgrades.
