All good things come to an end, and that includes operating systems. This time around it’s Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 r2. As of January 14, 2020, Microsoft will no longer be providing security updates for these systems. This means that any devices running on these operating systems will become vulnerable to security threats after January 14, 2020.
What You Can Do
We encourage you to begin planning for the upgrade of these devices to a newer, more secure operating system. The sooner you start this process, the easier it will be to ensure that you can:
- Have time to determine the most beneficial IT solutions for your business.
- Work in the transition period during a more convenient time for you and your staff.
- Plan for the expense of the upgrade.
What You Don’t Want to Do
Put it off until the last minute. Something this vital to your business operations and security isn’t something you want to rush or push to the side.
