How to Prepare for Windows 7 and Server 2008 End of Life

Support for Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 ends in January 2020

Windows 7

After January 14, 2020, Microsoft will no longer provide security updates or support for PCs with Windows 7. If you continue to use Windows 7 after support has ended, your PC will still work, but it may become more vulnerable to security risks. Upgrading to Windows 10 is recommended to keep your employees productive and secure.

Windows Server 2008 / 2008 R2

After January 14, 2020, support Windows Server 2008 and 2008 R2 will end. That means the end of regular security updates. Don't let your infrastructure and applications go unprotected.

Acronym and Microsoft can have you covered with new options:
