How Will Windows 7 End of Life Affect Your Business?

After January 14, 2020, your business will be at risk. The computers you use at work could be vulnerable to ransomware attacks and data breaches. 60 percent of companies fold within six months of a cyber attack. You could possibly lose your customers and ultimately your business.

How is Your Business at Risk?

Using outdated versions of Windows can put your devices at risk.

Your Business Will No Longer Be Secure

If you continue using outdated systems, your computers will be at the mercy of cyberattacks and data breaches. Windows will operate, but you will stop receiving security updates. The cost of a data breach has risen 12 percent over the past 5 years and now costs $3.92 million on average. Imagine the havoc a cyberattack can create with an unsupported and unsecured version of Windows.

You Will Risk Losing Customers

Various industry regulations like PCI, HIPPA, GDPR, etc., require all businesses to keep their systems secure. But without security updates, your computers will be vulnerable to risks, thereby being non-compliant to the industry regulations.

Free security and software support for Windows 7 ended on January 14, 2020. Which means Windows 7 is longer be supported by Microsoft and your MSP will not be responsible for any kind of cyberattack and data breach.

Upgrading to a newer version of Windows ensures enhanced security, usability and speed.
