The 2020 Problem

Did you know in 2020 the following software reaches end of life

  • Small Business Server 2011
  • Windows Server 2008
  • Exchange 2010
  • Windows 7
  • Office 2010

You might not know if you have this software. But if you do you have a couple of problems that will need to be dealt with in the coming months.

Firstly the software won’t suddenly stop working. what it means is that you will not get any security updates to the software.  Perhaps you remember this when Windows XP was retired, and most public sectors were still using it?

The problem is because it won’t be supported, you will not be GDPR compliant.

If that doesn’t worry you, there will be security holes in the products and hackers will find them and exploit them.

The solution is to let us have a look.

We will check and see if you have this software (some basic guidance is in the latest guide), just sign up to our newsletter to get hold of it.

Once we have checked we can either confirm you are OK, or help you come up with a plan to upgrade the software.  Get in touch soon so you can alter your budgets for next year to account for this.
