What’s Holding You Back?
|What’s Holding You Back?|
April 8, 2014 will mark the last day of support for Microsoft Windows XP. Beyond that date, the future for machines running XP may be pretty dark. Just about everyone in the technology and security world expects a mass of exploits to be released targeting those machines. What is holding you back from updating to a newer version of Windows?
Later this week, Windows XP users will start getting a notification from Microsoft stating the end of support is coming soon. Microsoft, also later this week, will be making a tool called PCmover Express available for users, at no cost, to copy files and settings to a newer Windows machine. It will be available for download at http://www.windowsxp.com.
Are there business reasons you still have machines loaded with Windows XP, such as specific software that is critical to your business’ operations? With Windows XP being almost 12 years old, it certainly is time to upgrade. Newer versions of Windows offer many enhancements and greater security over XP. BEMA can help with any questions you might have about upgrading or how the end of support for XP can impact you or your business.
