RIP: Goodbye, Windows 7

Rest in peace

In 2020, Windows 7 and Office 2010 will no longer receive support from Microsoft. These platforms will no longer receive security patches and updates, leaving your organization vulnerable unless you act.

Here are the key insights and actions.

Please note that if you’re running on platforms prior to Windows 7 and Office 2010, support for those has already ended and it strongly recommended you upgrade to Windows 10 and M365 immediately.
