MICROSOFT ENDS SUPPORT FOR WINDOWS 7 IN 2020!
Windows 7 has been one of the most successful operating systems developed by Microsoft and is still in use in many businesses even today.
It will be the end of the road for Windows 7 in January 2020, which means that Microsoft will put an end to Windows 7 security updates, bug fixes, and all support.
Although there’s certainly nothing preventing your businesses from utilising Windows 7 even after its End of Life (EOL) in January 2020, it would be best if you remain aware that using an outdated operating system will mean you are vulnerable to CYBER-ATTACKS.
Numerous small to medium size businesses stayed with Windows XP long after its EOL and subsequently suffered from severe CYBER-ATTACKS from infamous hackers like the WannaCry ransomware. There’s a solid possibility that criminals are already acting on how they can exploit the vulnerabilities produced when Microsoft terminates their extended support period for Windows 7. Don’t be caught out!
New Malware is generated daily so it’s essential to understand that anyone continuing to use Windows 7 could be more vulnerable. Without regular patches and security updates, you’re basically at the hands of hackers.
We all avoid changes it’s just normal. Although when it comes to something important like your operating system, your company and staff will profit by having the latest Microsoft products installed. Every year, new features are added to Windows operating systems to enhance the user’s experience. Once your team understands how to utilise all these great new features, yourself and others can save time and money while providing better services.
