Exchange 2010 – End of Support (EOS)

On October 13, 2020, Exchange Server 2010 will reach end of support. If you haven’t already begun your migration from Exchange 2010 to Office 365 or Exchange 2016, now’s the time to start your planning.

Exchange Server, like almost all Microsoft products, has a support lifecycle during which we provide new features, bug fixes, security fixes, and so on. This lifecycle typically lasts for 10 years from the date of the product’s initial release, and the end of this lifecycle is known as the product’s end of support. When Exchange 2010 reaches its end of support on October 13, 2020, Microsoft will no longer provide:

  • Technical support for problems that may occur;
  • Bug fixes for issues that are discovered and that may impact the stability and usability of the server;
  • Security fixes for vulnerabilities that are discovered and that may make the server vulnerable to security breaches;
  • Time zone updates.

Your installation of Exchange 2010 will continue to run after this date. However, because of the changes listed above, we strongly recommend that you migrate from Exchange 2010 as soon as possible.

Windows 7 – End of Support (EOS)

Did you know that Windows 7 End-of-Life support will end on the 14th January 2020?

What does this mean?

Microsoft will stop releasing updates and patches for the operating system and will also not offer help and support if you encounter any issues. Hackers will knowingly be ready to exploit this time window and will take advantage of this vulnerability.

Do not be left susceptible to cyber-attacks because of this. Contact us today so that we may show you how to mitigate these risks.

Why Shift to a Modern Workplace

Productivity and collaboration are of the utmost importance in today’s office environment.

In today’s world having this ‘work wherever you are’ luxury is not enough. Users still need to be connected in real-time to their colleagues but this must be done in a secure and reliable way whilst keeping simplicity at the forefront of the solution.
