Windows 7 End of Life Phase: Prepare Your Business for a Smooth Transition

After Microsoft announced that support for Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 is coming to an end January 2020, millions of users across the globe are faced with the decision to upgrade to a new operating system or be left vulnerable to security attacks with no technical support. If your business is still running on Windows 7, it’s time to start preparing for a smooth transition to keep your company secure and protected. 

The term “end of life” is used by Microsoft to describe this phase Windows 7 is entering, meaning that this operating system will no longer receive technical support, software updates, or security updates.  While users can continue to use Windows 7 after support has ended, Microsoft recommends you upgrade to Windows 10 to avoid security risks and viruses. Implementing an operating system that is up-to-date and fully supported will ensure that your business is taking action to protect important data and meet all compliance requirements.
