Microsoft Products’ End of Support Dates

News Millenium Micro - Microsoft Products’ End of Support Dates

Over the next 2 years, 4 Microsoft products, which are still heavily used in companies, will reach end of support. Do not wait; because when you want to change the computer or server operating system, now’s the time to start your planning.

What does it mean for you?

Once the product’s end of support date has been reached, if you still use it, it will no longer receive security updates. Therefore, it is important to migrate to a newer version that provides the latest security updates to keep you and your data safe. In addition, Microsoft Customer Service will no longer be available to provide technical support for these products.

What should you do?

The process consists in upgrading the software or changing the equipment, including a newer version of the operating system.
 
What happens if you continue to use the product after the end of support date?
 
You can continue to use the product; but after the end of lifecycle, your computer will become more vulnerable to security attacks, malware, and viruses. This means that the software will continue to work, but you will no longer receive software updates, including security updates from Microsoft.
