HELP: Windows XP Support ending April 8, 2014

The rumors are true! Microsoft has announced that Windows XP will go out of support on April 8, 2014.

If your organization has not started to prepare for this change, time is running out. According to Microsoft, “the average enterprise deployment can take 18-32 months from business case through full deployment“. That means now is the time to discuss what your migration strategy is.

If you decide to run Windows XP in your organization after the end of support date you are opening your company up to security and compliance risks, among many other vulnerabilities.
