Microsoft will soon end support for the Windows 7 Operating System.
The Windows 7 operating system was first released in 2009, it was an operating system we all needed after experiencing Windows Vista which we all quickly tried to move on from. Windows 7 has gone on to perform exceptionally well as a stable operating system for many companies. Nearly 10 years on, there are still quite a lot of companies that haven’t made the switch to Windows 10 and have either chosen to remain with Windows 7 or cannot move due to restrictions with their business applications.
Time is now ticking with the support for Windows 7 due to end on January 14th 2020. This means that Microsoft will no longer provide technical assistance or provide updates. We now live in an age where Cyber threats are a constant concern, ensuring that your computer has the latest updates is vital for remaining safe. Businesses that continue to use Windows 7 after the deadline will be vulnerable to Cyber-attacks.
If you are a business that still operates Windows 7 then our advice is that you should plan to move to the new operating system which is Windows 10. With well over a year to plan, you can spread the cost of the upgrade.
