January is only around the corner,and as stressful as this can be,this is the month that support ends for windows server 2008 and windows 7!

January 14th server support for 2008 will stop being supported, and on the 22nd Windows 7 will stop being supported also.

What does this mean?

Well; it means that you could be putting your business at serious risk!When support ends, windows will stop offering bug fixes as well as security updates, subsequently leaving your systems vulnerable to more cyber attacks and also letting hackers take advantage of “day zero” bugs, which is the use of previously unknown software issues that people could potentially use to steal data or threaten your security measures.

As support ends, any bugs left unfixed propose a threat to your systems and therefore your business.
