Prepare for Windows Server 2008 end of life (EOL)

February 15, 2019
On January 14, 2020, support for 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. We’re here to help you migrate to current versions for greater security, performance and innovation.

While EOL products don’t stop working immediately, Microsoft will no longer provide support for them. That means if anything breaks, there won’t be a fix available.  

However, the biggest risk of continuing to use end of life products is that they will no longer receive any patches or security updates. This leaves you vulnerable to cyber attacks with a potential for data loss, because it’s virtually impossible to prevent attacks from hackers if a product contains security vulnerabilities that aren’t being fixed.
Hackers prey on vulnerabilities, and end of life software provides them with ample opportunities. You spend time and money increasing security awareness and implementing anti-malware solutions, so why take unnecessary risks with your software by refusing to migrate?

Get in touch to see how we can help you transition to the latest Windows Server Operating System.
