Windows XP and Server 2003 – End of Life is Coming Soon.

By | Industry News, Security | No Comments

Microsoft has been very transparent over the last several years that Windows XP and Windows Server 2003 are entering end of life in 2014.

What does this mean for you?

Depending on your industry, this could be very problematic. Microsoft stops creating and pushing technical and security patches to their products once mainstream support has ended. This puts computers at risk to operating system vulnerabilities, ultimately putting data and machine stability at risk. Additionally, software vendors aren’t really building software for XP anymore. Ipaddress I mean, why would anyone want to develop on an OS that’s 12 years old? Yes, it’s been 12 years already!

The time is now to upgrade your environment. Take this year to decide a budget and give Jabtech a call to help with your operating system migrations.
