Now is the Time to Plan
Rather than worry, here’s what we suggest you do instead. Contact EXP to discuss the complications keeping you tied to an outdated operating system. Whatever legacy issues you’re facing, fixing them on your terms is much better than being forced to deal with them due to a cyber security breach or ransomware attack. While we’re at it, we can create a plan to keep your operating system up to date going forward so you always remain as protected as possible.
We suggest updating to an operating system that’s no older than Windows 10 or Windows Server 2016. But before you do, it’s necessary to make sure any new system is compatible with all your other applications, such as accounting software, so be sure to contact us to complete an assessment. Addressing end of support issues now lets you run your business with greater peace of mind — and less worry.
