Is Your Organization Still Using Windows XP? By Reno computer services provider

Monday, March 3rd, 2014
windows-xpDo you know Microsoft’s official support for Windows XP ends on 8th April 2014? What does that mean to you and your business? this means you will no longer receive new security updates, hot-fixes, no technical support, unless you buy a custom support which cost a fortune (Gratner estimated $200k-$500k per year for custom support). All this means, the new glitches and vulnerabilities discovered in windows XP after the end of support will NOT be addressed by Microsoft, so don’t expect “update Tuesdays” anymore. 18% of Windows users worldwide still use the XP platform.
There are a few important key points business owners need to realize on the risk they will be exposed to beyond April 8, 2104 :
  • Security :without security updates and hot fixes for issues found everyday. your PC may become exposed to harmful viruses, spyware, hacker attacks, which can damage your business data and information.
  • Compliance :Business that are governed by regulatory obligations like HIPPA, will face that they are no longer able to satisfy these regulatory obligations.
  • Hardware Support :Most of PC manufacturer will stop supporting windows XP on existing and new hardware (most of machines are coming with windows 7 and up).

How do I stay protected?

Two things, either upgrade your current operation system if you hardware allows of course, otherwise you will be running to issues. Or buy a new machines, as simple as that. Time is money, and investing in a solid IT infrastructure  is critical for business continuity.
