Stratix Systems Windows 7 End-Of-Life

On January 14, 2020, less than a year from now, Microsoft will end its 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 in the United States are currently running Windows 7. And all are at risk for real trouble.

The fact is that any organization running Windows 7, Windows Server 2008/R2 or Exchange Server 2010 after January 14, 2020 will be almost instantly vulnerable to security threats that are becoming ever more sophisticated, immediately placing their data at risk of theft, destruction or ransom.

A server’s responsibilities and processes can result in a longer-than- average replacement process. Replacing a server with Windows Server 2008/ R2 will typically require purchasing new hardware.
