Hardware and Software Expire

Technology is constantly evolving and advancing. What was once cutting-edge is soon obsolete.

While many people may not think twice about using outdated technology, it has security and privacy implications for your business. Outdated technology is less secure than newer versions because it no longer receives the latest security patches and may not be compliant with current privacy regulations, leaving your data at risk.

End-of-support for Office 2013

As of April 2023, Office 2013 was no longer supported by Microsoft. Even if all your Office 2013 apps have continued to function, you run the risk of being exposed to security vulnerabilities such as malware, phishing, ransomware, and data theft.

The best option is to migrate to Microsoft 365. This cloud-based service can increase employee productivity and collaboration. In its subscription-based model, Microsoft automatically patches vulnerabilities. More significantly, your workflow is unaffected by these updates as they take place in the background and your systems remain protected from sophisticated threats.

A stitch in time saves nine

There has been an upsurge in data breaches and cyberattacks, yet many organizations are still not taking adequate precautions to defend themselves. The biggest mistake a business can make is presuming that its cybersecurity measures are sufficient.

Investing in supported technologies is the most advantageous ways to protect your business since they have routine internal security measures in place, and their support teams create and release updates and patches to make the product more secure and helpful.
