April 2014 - end date!
What does end of support for Windows XP mean?
An unsupported version of Windows will no longer receive software updates. These include security updates that help to protect your PC from harmful viruses, spyware, and other malicious software.
What are the risks that businesses face by staying on Windows XP?
Since there will be no scheduled security patches after April 8, 2014, companies continuing to run Windows XP face the risk of targeted hacking attacks. SMBs (small – medium business) are often targeted because they lack sufficient protection, and cybercriminals sometimes use them as a stepping-stone to larger targets. 2012 saw a 30% increase in Web-based attacks, and it’s possible many of these used the compromised website of a small business to attack a larger organization (Symantec study, 2012.)
Are there hidden costs to staying on Windows XP after the end of support date?
Yes, staying on Windows XP after the end of support date means paying for:
• Virtualizing the entire OS to remain compliant with the Microsoft end user license agreement (EULA) (Valid while there’s Server 2003 support available)
• Running XP in a sandboxed environment
• Mobile Device Management
