Less than 8 months to go!

As we first announced in our January 2018 newsletter, the Microsoft Windows 7 desktop operating system and several additional key products including Exchange Server 2010, Windows Server 2008, and Small Business Server 2011, will be going end of support in January, 2020. End of support refers to the date when Microsoft no longer provides automatic fixes, updates, or online technical assistance. Without Microsoft support, security updates will no longer be provided against potentially harmful viruses, spyware, and other malicious software that can put information at risk.

The good news is we’ve completed hundreds of upgrades and replacements of Windows 7 PCs and laptops and Windows Server 2008 and Windows SBS 2011 servers in the last year. The bad news is we’ve barely scratched the surface!

If your organization hasn’t coordinated an upgrade plan to date, there’s still time, but we need to have your project in queue by 7/1/19 to be sure we can complete the project by 1/1/20. Many of you have already had discussions with your Client Relationship Manager, Jasmin or Seth. However, if keeping your environment secure is a priority, we encourage you to discuss with them the timing of your upgrade plan by the end of June to be sure we get your upgrade project complete by the January deadline.
