Preparing For The End Of Windows 7
If you're still clinging to your old Windows 7 machines, you should know that the day is relentlessly drawing closer when Microsoft is going to stop supporting the OS altogether. On January 14, 2020, Microsoft will end support for Windows 7. That means no more updates, security or otherwise, will be offered by the company from that date forward.
If you're dead-set on continuing to use Windows 7 past this date when official support ends, it is vital you know that while your PC will continue to work, the security of your network is at significant risk. With the end of Microsoft support, it means that all updates, including security updates, will no longer be provided by Microsoft. Hackers around the world are going to find flaws in Windows 7's armor and Microsoft isn't going to be around to fix them.
Did you also know that an increasing percentage of modern software simply won't run on those older systems, which puts you and your business operations at risk?. You would have to purchase new separate systems to run the newer software you need while maintaining a few of the older devices to house and run the software that depends on the older OS. That complicates things, to say the least.
As a local certified Microsoft Partner, we are committed to helping businesses and healthcare practices make this transition from Windows 7 and are offering a free Microsoft Risk Assessment and Migration Plan to get you started.
At no cost to you, we will come to your location and run a 37- Point Risk Assessment to not only determine what specific devices are still using Windows 7, but also to assess other security, backup, and efficiency factors that could be costing you in business productivity and potential revenue.
After performing this assessment, we're confident that we will not only be able to expose a number of security risks and issues and answer questions such as:
We’ll also develop a customized Migration Plan and show you how to painlessly upgrade your old Windows 7 machines and close the door to cybercriminals who most certainly are already making plans to take advantage of those that don’t perform the upgrade and become easy targets for their attacks.
After we review the assessment and migration plan, there is no commitment on your part to implement any of our suggestions or work with us to migrate your Windows 7 machines. If nothing else, you get a FREE 3rd party assessment of your network.
