Support for Windows 7 expired on January 14, 2020 and Windows 8.1 expired January 10, 2023. This means that Microsoft no longer provides security updates or technical support for systems running on a Windows 7 and 8.1 operating systems.
Organisations who continue to run unsupported Windows OS after this time will become more vulnerable to security risks. Security vulnerabilities impact the performance and usability of desktops and applications data, with data loss and data integrity concerns.
“22% of SMBs and enterprises still rely on unsupported or approaching EOS operating systems for their security needs.”
