Why January 14, 2020 is practically tomorrow.

On January 14, 2020, Microsoft will be ending their Extended Support for Windows 7, Windows Server 2008/R2 and Exchange Server 2010. Forever. That’s a big deal for every organization, because about 42% of all Windows computers are currently running Windows 7. And all are at risk for real trouble.

How so?

When Microsoft ends its Extended Support, any organization running Windows 7, Server 2008/R2 or Exchange Server 2010 will be vulnerable almost instantly to security threats that are becoming ever more sophisticated, immediately placing their data at risk of theft, destruction or ransom. That’s a scary thought. And the timing is what is really important here.

Acting now is absolutely critical. Here’s why:

Microsoft’s Extended Support will end on the same day for everyone. As a result, every organization and user around the world will be transitioning at the same time. That is why it is important that you begin working on a migration plan now. Waiting until the last minute, or even the last few months, could result in a disastrous scenario of hardware, software and engineering shortages, poorly-considered decisions – and vulnerable systems and data.
