Windows 7 End of Life. What does this mean to your business?

Risks of not upgrading to Windows 10

Windows 10 was released in 2015. It is much faster than Windows 7 and comes with many more features as compared to it. It supports different apps and can be used on multiple devices such as PCs, smartphones, tablets, etc. Let us have a look at some of the risks of not upgrading your operating system to Windows 10.

Hardware slowdown

Windows 7 was released ten years ago and thus, it has become outdated and slow. It is not capable of running on the latest hardware and as a result, it causes system slowdowns and crashes.

No technical or security support from Microsoft

As mentioned above, after January 2020, you will not receive any security updates or technical assistance from Microsoft. It could result in a number of threats such as viruses, malware, hacks, etc.

Bug battles

Every operating system is susceptible to bugs, which are identified and fixed by Microsoft. However, with the end of extended support, there will be no more fixing of bugs.

Software incompatibility

Windows 7 does not support all the new apps and software. Therefore, there is a high chance that you will not be able to use them on Windows 7. So to run the new apps and software, Windows 10 is necessary.

Hacker attacks

To prevent hacking and other threats, constant security updates are necessary. Once the extended support service ends, no security updates will be provided by Microsoft. Therefore, to get the security updates, you need to upgrade to Windows 10.
