Microsoft has announced Windows 7 End of Support will take place on January 14, 2020. Instead of supporting Windows 7, their efforts will be spent on supporting new technologies and new versions of Windows. You can find out the implications of this and what it means for you or your business below.
After January 2020, you will no longer receive Windows 7 security updates. Microsoft will no longer provide security updates or Windows 7 support. Depending upon the primary use of your device that operates Windows 7, it may be important that you upgrade to a newer Windows operating system to avoid being at risk to security breaches.
End of support for Windows 7 means “technical assistance and software updates from Windows Updates that help protect your PC will no longer be available.”
By replacing your system or upgrading to a new version of Windows, your business or personal security will be aligned with a more robust and secure system that will be under warranty with Microsoft.
As a standard, Windows 10 provides encryption on all machines, meaning your machines will be further secured against security risks.
If your you or your company has machines running on Windows 7, they are likely to be over 3 years old. It may be that your machines are all up to date, however, we strongly recommend you take action by October 1, 2019 and speak with your technology provider like us, as soon as possible to allow plenty of time should changes be needed.

After 12 years, support for Microsoft Windows XP ended April 8, 2014. There will be no more security updates or technical support for the Windows XP operating system. It is very important that customers migrate to a modern operating system such as Windows Vista, 7, 8 or 8.1. Customers moving to a modern operating system will benefit from dramatically enhanced security, broad device choice for mobile use, higher productivity, and a lower total cost of ownership through improved capabilities.
It means that you should take action. After April 8, 2014, Microsoft will no longer provide security updates or technical support for Windows XP. Security updates patch vulnerabilities that may be exploited by adware, malware, etc. and help keep users and their data safer. Computers running Microsoft Windows XP after April 8, 2014, should not be considered to be protected, and it is important that you migrate to a current supported operating system – such as Windows Vista, 7, 8 or 8.1. – so you can receive regular security updates to protect your computer from malicious attacks.
If you have any questions on what you should do next or are in the market for a new device, feel free to give us a call. We're here to help and answer all of your questions and concerns regarding the end of support.
