After 10 years, support for Windows 7 ended on January 14, 2020. You’ve received many warnings about the cessation of Windows 7 support in January, but now it’s finally gone into effect. That means that any of your computers and devices that are running Windows 7 are now not receiving support or updates from Microsoft. This includes vital security patches, tech support and other benefits that are extended to those who use Windows software by Microsoft. So, what should you do now?
Why You Need to Change Operating Systems
- If you don’t upgrade, your entire network will become vulnerable due to a lack of security updates and patches for a single computer. Patch management is vital to protecting your business and customer information, so every day one computer is unsupported is a day that you are putting yourself at serious risk.
- Running Windows 7 means that there’s a good chance your computers are on the slower side, and continuing to run it without updates will mean that things get even slower.
- On top of your lack of bug fixes and security updates, you cannot receive free support or online content updates for Windows 7.
