What does this mean for industrial users?
Is your facility using Windows 7 or Windows Server 2008 for its industrial control systems? If so, you should know that beginning January 14, 2020, Microsoft will no longer be providing security updates or support for these products. This means your systems will become increasingly more vulnerable to security risks.
Can your operation afford the uncertainty of production downtime, proprietary information loss, or even a full system failure? Stay current and migrate to Windows 10, and the latest release of Windows Server. This will ensure you continue receiving the latest security patches necessary for maximum uptime.
Not sure how to migrate?
