Microsoft support for Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 ends this January. Don’t take unnecessary risks, talk to us today about your upgrade options.
Windows 7 and Server 2008 were a couple of Microsoft’s best-loved computing operating systems and a lot of users are still using it. But like all operating systems before it, these are fast approaching the end of their lifecycle, making an upgrade an absolutely essential task for the safety of your devices.
If you continue to use Windows 7 or Server 2008 after support has ended, your devices will still work, but it will become more vulnerable to security risks and viruses. Your devices will continue to start and run, but Microsoft will no longer provide the following support for your business:
- No technical support
- No software updates
- No security updates
Microsoft ends mainstream support five years after the release of an operating system, which then pushes it into extended support. This period usually runs for another five years too, but you get less support. Essentially it means the company stops adding new features and ends complimentary support for that version of Windows. This puts one of the best-loved operating systems at a decade old.
