With the upcoming End of Life for Windows 7, there is no better time than now to start upgrading your business workstations to Windows 10. On January 14th, 2020, Microsoft will officially drop support for Windows 7. This means that after that date, Microsoft will no longer provide support, security patches, and software updates to the Windows 7 operating systems. In today’s world, where cyber-security is of extreme importance, this is a big deal. After January 14th, any vulnerability or exploit that cyber-criminals find with Windows 7, will not be patched. This leaves any computer running Windows 7 unsecure, and extremely vulnerable to potential hacks, viruses, and ransomware attacks that we have all heard about. Even with updated and active antivirus software on your Windows 7 computer, without security and software updates from Microsoft, these machines are a massive risk to your business’s security. If something should happen with your workstation running Windows 7, or an issue that Microsoft needs to be contacted about, you will be unable to utilize Microsoft support, paid or free.
The solution to this problem is simple, and the team at Go2IT is here to make the transition as smooth as possible. Whether it is upgrading your current workstations to Windows 10, or migrating to new workstations with Windows 10, we have you covered. Our team will be able to migrate your data, re-install your vital applications, and get you back to work safely and securely.
With new threats coming out daily, we cannot stress enough how important it is to complete this transition before the expiration of January 14th. Cyber-criminals have been known to wait until the day after the expiration to release their viruses, knowing that the operating system is now vulnerable. Let us get you transitioned to Windows 10 before they have a chance to put your data at risk.
