Exactly 3 years ago, between April and July 2014, Microsoft ended the extended support for Windows XP and Windows Server 2003 Operating Systems. As a consequence, the security updates and technical support are no longer provided. After 15 years of compatibility, Selerant announces the end of support for all environments that are still working with these operating systems, starting from 1st June 2017.
It is very important that customers migrate to a newer operating system such as Windows 10 for client workstations and Windows Server 2012 for servers.
What does it mean?
If you continue to use Windows XP after 8th April 2014, you may be subject to all those attacks that take advantage of unresolved security gaps. Security updates protect the system against vulnerabilities and contribute to keeping your data more secure.
PCs that are still running Windows XP should not be considered secure; therefore it is important to migrate to an operating system that is currently supported, such as Windows 7 (up to 2020), Windows 8.1 or Windows 10, in order to receive security updates on a regular basis, protecting your computer against attacks.
Moreover the next HazEX Professional 3.5 update cannot be installed on Windows XP and Windows Server 2003, so these Operating Systems will not allow you to benefit from the important regulatory updates and technical support.
