7 day count down to Windows 7 end of life

by | Jan 7, 2020 | Client Consultancy, Cloud Services, Cyber Security, OIT Updates, Special Alerts

7 days and counting, your business, data and GDPR compliance will be at serious risk.

January 14th, 2020 marks the end of Windows 7; no longer receiving vital security updates and patches, leaving your IT infrastructure exposed to the latest data security threats…a risky game to play.

Your PC’s and laptops won’t suddenly stop working but you won’t be protected from new malware and viruses, and other vendors will no longer support their software running Windows 7.

Don’t bury your head in the sand
– you have two choices to make

Option 1: You can upgrade your existing Desktops/Laptops to Windows 10 if they are not too old, but you need to work out how much life there is left in the them, and the relative cost of purchase for licensing and upgrading costs (likely more RAM will be needed) and these days, we would supply a machine without an SSD.

Option 2: In some cases, taking into consideration productivity, it may be just as well to move to a new machine, as there is less user downtime than upgrading an existing machine.

If you have any sort of Information Security accreditation or certification, then the time is now to make the move. For example, current users of Windows 7 won’t make it through a Cyber Essentials questionnaire.

Upgrading to Windows 10 doesn’t have to be a major undertaking

Upgrading to Windows 10 can be a comparatively straightforward process with a lot of gains to be made in terms of security, productivity, and end user satisfaction. With our experience and knowledge in Windows 10 upgrade projects, we can help you make the smooth transition to Windows 10. We have small to medium sized projects as well as multiple large-scale projects for clients in both the Insurance sectors internationally, as well for public funded organisations.

Our key takeaway is that prevention is better than cure, especially when you have a lot to lose in terms of serious loss of data, reputational damage and the potential to go under in the aftermath of a Cyber-attack.

Act today, let us help you to upgrade to Windows 10, and rest assured you’ve made the best decision so far this year. We’d be happy to discuss your individual requirements, call (0)1242 505 470 or get in touch via our contact form.

Don’t delay, upgrade to Windows 10 by discussing your requirements with us. Call (0)1242 505 470, or complete our contact enquiry form and we will be happy to return your call.
