Is your business still using outdated systems? Your company could be at risk.
Cyber threats can not only cripple a small and midsize company but also tarnish its reputation. If your company is using outdated legacy devices and running on unsupported versions of Windows operating system, it's time to upgrade.
Stay on Outdated Systems and Become a Victim of Cyberattacks
In 2018, cyberattacks cost businesses an average of $1.1 million per attack. With ransomware attacks and data breaches becoming a norm of everyday life, keeping your computers secure has become a priority for businesses. Hence continuing to use outdated systems is not only going to risk the business but also cost in millions.
After January 14, 2020, Windows 7 will no longer be supported by Microsoft, which means if you are still using Windows 7 post this date, your computers will be vulnerable to cyberattacks.
You will also risk being non-compliant to the industry regulations, which may affect your customers and thereby your business.
Upgrade and Stop Worrying About Security
The security benefits of the newest version of Windows are hard to deny. Old operating systems are slow and become incompatible with software over time.
The newer version of Windows has improved privacy, transparency and enhanced security features which makes it a must for every organization. It also comes with a variety of productivity-boosting features and functions, making it easier to use.
With only six months to spare, businesses, that have not planned for an upgrade, should begin to work on a migration strategy.
