Windows 7 End of Support – Background, Business Impact, Options for Action

On January 14, 2020 Microsoft will end support for Windows 7, which is still one of the most widely used versions of Windows in the corporate environment. After that date, no more updates for Windows 7 will be made available i.e. no more security gaps will be closed and no more technical support will be provided by Microsoft. Continued usage of Windows 7 will leave you vulnerable to:

  • Security problems such as 2017’s WannaCry malware attack
  • Weakened Business Stability and Compatibility

To prepare for this change you must create a detailed plan for the far-reaching impact that Windows 7 end of extended support will have on your technological environment.
