Windows XP SP3 & Office 2003 End of Support – Are You Ready?

Are you still on Windows XP or Office 2003? The final countdown is well on its’ way and PC Professional is ready to help. For those XP users out there still holding on for dear life, you should’ve got a security patch today, March 11th, another one will come on April 8th and then it’s over. Microsoft will no longer support XP in any form or fashion. That means no updates or patches and no support whatsoever.

If you have any business data sitting on your XP system you are putting your business at risk for vulnerabilities and data theft. Beware that fixes coming out for Windows 7 and Windows 8 will only fuel hackers to exploit XP. Windows XP has been on the front line of service for 12 years, it’s time to upgrade. Recently, the troubles Apple went through with their SSL/TLS proves that hackers are out there aggressively looking for “holes” in core operating systems.

With so many SMB clients still running XP in their live environments, you risk compromising your entire network once an infiltration occurs on a single XP system. If the XP system is required by specific business needs, such as older equipment or applications that only run on XP, there are ways to minimize your risk. Call your PC Professional representative today and discuss your options. We want to at least share strategies on how to protect your network-the conversation is free, act now before it’s too late.

We’re ready to support you so give us a call now!
