Do you need dedicated computer service for your Ann Arbor or southeast Michigan area business?
Is your business still running Windows 7 or Server 2008?
If you’re still running either Windows 7 or Server 2008, it’s time to prepare for the beginning of the end!
Professional Computer Service for Ann Arbor, Michigan Area Businesses
In January 2020, Microsoft will officially stop supporting Windows 7 and Server 2008. What does that mean for your business? It means it’s time for an upgrade! If your business computers are still running Windows 7 or if you still have Server 2008 going, that doesn’t mean these systems will stop functioning at the stroke of midnight January 1st, 2020. They’ll still work – but they’ll be vulnerable to hacks and security breaches.
With Microsoft stopping user support, that means they’re stopping all critical updates – including essential security patches! As we mentioned in our article about the importance of having an IT Specialist, you need to make sure your equipment and software are protected. This could lead to big problems for your business if left unattended.
Data breaches, viruses, malware, ransomware – any one of these threats can cause any number of headaches for your business. The best thing you can do right now is prepare to upgrade your equipment and software. We recommend upgrading your equipment every 3-5 years and this end of support announcement from Microsoft is the very reason why.
