Any craftsman will tell you that it’s tough to do a good job without the proper tools.  Implementing the latest technology also helps your small business compete for the top talent.  Meanwhile, given the prevalence of malicious cyber breaches, every business large or small needs to protect their data.  Knowing your customer and employee data stays safe allows you to focus on your business, rather than your business network.

However, if your organization operates Windows 7 and Office 2010, you are about to develop significant security vulnerabilities.  Microsoft plans to end support for Windows 7 on Jan. 14, 2020.  The end-of-life deadline for Office 2020 will follow close behind.

As you transition away from Windows 7, it’s important to ensure that you have a productive and secure experience.  That’s where the enterprise-level security features and powerful mobile device management capabilities of Microsoft 365 come into play.
