Four Risks of Not Upgrading to Windows 10

By |2019-11-11T17:18:29-07:00November 21st, 2019|Cyber Security, Office 365, Partners|0 Comments

If you’re still running Windows 7 or Windows 8, you could be vulnerable to a range of risks. That’s because Microsoft ended mainstream support for Windows 7 way back in January 2015, and its extended support will end in January 2020. Additionally, Microsoft discontinued mainstream support for Windows 8 in January 2018, and will end extended support in January 2023.  This will leave you vulnerable to a wide range of risks, including cybersecurity attacks and hardware inefficiencies.
