With Microsoft killing off some of its most popular business software (including Windows 7) in less than six months, there’s more pressure than ever for organisations to upgrade.

When Microsoft stops supporting this out of date software, there’ll be no official support for it when it breaks, and this will make it a prime target for hackers and may result in a fine from the ICO.

Half of all businesses are still using this software that comes to the end of its life in January 2020 – a situation that is being deemed the ‘2020 problem’. Maybe you are one of them…

If you don’t take action soon (by autumn at the latest) you’re in danger of major security threats and downtime.

We appreciate that it sounds like just another expense but upgrading to the latest software really does make good business sense.

Here are five reasons that millions of users around the world have left behind Microsoft’s older software, for the latest releases:

  1. Enhanced security
  2. Easy, fast communication
  3. Quicker decision making
  4. Improved productivity
  5. Long-term cost savings (this is the one most likely to put smiles on budget holders’ faces!)

Don’t become a casualty of the 2020 problem. Upgrade from soon to be outdated Windows software and protect your business from cyber security risks.
