Support for Windows 7 is ending – are you prepared?

All good things must come to an end – the statement of inevitability is widely used to foresee situations that although have been so good, must cease to be so thanks to modern updates and technology innovations.   

So yes, all good things must come to an end, even Windows 7. After January 14, 2020, Microsoft will no longer provide security updates or support for PCs running Windows 7. 

Windows 7 was one of Microsoft’s best-loved computing operating systems, and most of us are still using it.  According to research, as of September 2018, 40.88% are still using Windows 7 – compared to the 37.44% who have moved on to the latest operating system, Windows 10. 

But like all operating systems before it, Windows 7 will eventually reach the end of its lifecycle, making an upgrade an essential task for the safety of your PC. 

What is the cost of doing nothing? 

Have you planned ahead? Are you prepared for your future migration to Windows 10? If not, then know that doing nothing comes at a cost… 

Old devices cost you more – PCs older than four years can cost small businesses over £1300 in maintenance, repairs, and lost productivity as compared to a new Windows device. 

Old devices add risk – Windows Devices that are over four years old may be not equipped with the latest hardware and software features to help protect your business. 

Old devices may not stay up to date – It’s essential that businesses migrate to Windows 10 so they can receive regular security updates.
