If you’re still using Windows XP you’re not alone. Many companies across the country are still using Microsoft’s most stable operating system. Over 11 years old now, Windows XP has nothing to be ashamed about. However, all good things must come to an end.
In April 2014, companies that are still using Windows XP will be left to fend for themselves, and their IT data could be at risk!
The Good News:
IT Company will work with you to develop an upgrade plan from Windows XP to either Windows 7 or Windows 8. During this time we’ll continue to support your systems that run Windows XP during your transition.
The Bad News:
If you elect to hold onto Windows XP, Microsoft will no longer provide any security updates, software patches or additional help if you need it; and our team won’t be able to get updates or help from Microsoft for you.
Upgrading to Windows 7 or 8 is the best choice for your business.
Windows 7 and Windows 8 are both logical upgrade choices for all businesses. Many companies that we support are quickly replacing their aging systems running Windows XP with Windows 7.
The Benefits of a Windows 7 Upgrade:
- Windows 7 is an easy upgrade for all users.
- The interface is very similar to Windows XP (unlike with Windows 8 which is a shift in a totally different direction).
- Windows 7 will work with all your legacy applications that run on Windows XP, and
- Will continue to be supported by Microsoft for at least the next few years.
Upgrade to either Windows 7 or 8 to ensure your data is protected.
With an abundance of security threats facing businesses today this is a real concern. If you continue to hold onto Windows XP, once your updates from Microsoft stop coming, security updates will stop as well. This could leave your system vulnerable and exposed to security threats.
