  • by

Please do not forget that Windows 7 and Windows 2008 Server operating systems are coming up on their “end of life” on January 14, 2020.

end of life for windows 7

It is very important to understand what “end of life” for Windows 7 and Windows 2008 Server operating systems actually means. End of life is the term that Microsoft uses to identify the period when the company will no longer support an operating system or application. This means Microsoft will move on from these operating systems and will no longer patch security holes or push any updates.

End of life hits on January 14, 2020 for any PC, laptop, tablet or any other device running this operating system and will be left unprotected against hackers and malicious software. Hackers, being aware of when the end of life is going to hit, are known to wait until after that date to take advantage of vulnerable systems. If you are interested to move to Windows 10, please contact us to discuss your options.

Additionally, when it comes to upgrading your server, it usually requires a new server system entirely and possibly new software. You must upgrade passed Server 2008 because your data and security are too important to put at that level of risk. January 14, 2020 is approaching rapidly and we strongly suggest taking all of this into consideration as we never like to see any of our clients run into issues that could possibly be a show stopper.
