With Microsoft calling time on support for Windows 7, every business should be thinking about making sure their technology is up to date.
Microsoft’s ending of support doesn’t mean Windows 7 will stop working, just that Microsoft will no longer be providing future updates or security patches for the operating system.
And while this might not seem like a big deal, if you’re trusting an outdated operating system to keep your business and financial information safe, you’re putting yourself at risk.
Just like you make sure the building you work in has sensible security systems in place, your business technology needs to be secured as well. And Windows 7 is already known to have significant security flaws that have been resolved in Windows 10.
Running an outdated operating system with no future support is like losing your office keys and then not changing the locks.
And after this move from Microsoft, it is only natural that future software releases will become increasing incompatible with Windows 7, meaning you might miss out on new features which could vastly improve the speed and capability of your business.
If you’re still running Windows 7, it’s not too late to upgrade. Speak to your IT provider or your Sybiz Authorised Business Partner today about upgrading to Windows 10 and protecting your business.
