It’s Judgment Day: Microsoft Ends Support for Windows XP

Today Microsoft has ended support of Windows XP. If you’re using a computer with XP, it’s essential that you take the proper steps now to upgrade your computer.

Starting today, Microsoft will no longer provide security updates or technical support for Windows XP. This includes support for security updates, patch vulnerabilities and malware – support that’s essential to keep data safe, and reduce security threats.

“PCs running Windows XP after April 8, 2014, should not be considered to be protected, and it is important that you migrate to a current supported operating system,” said Microsoft’s website.

Upgrading your system now will provide you with enhanced security features, support the mobile workforce and yield higher productivity from a more reliable operating system.

This GovLoop infographic from October, A Strategic Imperative: Why You Must Upgrade Your Windows XP Machine, helps show why it’s essential to upgrade from Windows XP.

If you still have yet to upgrade, be sure to do so today. Upgrading your operating system will give you the peace of mind that you’ve taken the necessary steps to remain secure.

As we said in October, upgrading is a strategic imperative for you. Explore the infographic to learn more.
