As of 14 January 2020 the operating system Windows 7 has become End of Life. This means Microsoft has stopped releasing updates and patches for the operating system. This also means Microsoft won’t be offering help and support if you encounter any problems.
Although you can choose to stay on Windows 7, it isn’t recommended. One of the biggest risks with staying on with Windows 7 is that it won’t be patched for security problems once it enters End of Life, and this leaves you extremely vulnerable to any emerging threats.
Now that Windows 7 is end of life, organisations that choose to stay with Windows 7 will be at increased risk of being targeted by malicious hackers and cybercriminals.
If you are still using Windows 7, we recommend you begin to migrate to Windows 10 in order to continue receiving new feature updates and security patches.
If you need help preparing for your Windows migration or want to know more about Windows 7 end of life, get in touch with your Account Manager or our sales team.
