From April 8th 2014 the support for Microsoft Windows XP will be ending. So it is nearly time to say goodbye to the popular decade-old operating system.
The end of support means, users will no longer receive anymore security updates. This will lead to security and privacy implications that can significantly impact businesses – without the updates systems may be vulnerable to harmful viruses, spyware and other malicious software.
If using an unsupported operating system, other software and hardware products on the system may also not be support by the vendors either. It will also make it difficult to purchase new software and hardware for the retired Window XP operating system.
Due to the lack of updates, supporting software and hardware, it could lead to users experiencing an increase of downtime and business disruption. To discuss the implications of the end of support for Windows XP in more detail or help with upgrading please contact us today.
