In the wake of Windows Server 2012 reaching the end of its extended support on 10th October 2023, businesses find themselves at a crossroads as the platform will no longer receive security updates, leaving businesses vulnerable to cyber attacks if immediate action isn’t taken. Our role as your trusted IT partner becomes pivotal and as Microsoft partners, we understand the challenges posed by the products end of life (EOL) and stand ready to help your business navigate the challenges smoothly.
In this article, we explore the consequences of operating in a post-Windows Server 2012 era and present strategic options: upgrading to Windows Server 2022 or embracing cloud-based solutions, with our expertise paving the way.
With the EOL deadline in the rearview mirror, Windows Server 2012 stands devoid of security patches and updates, making it an open target for cyber threats. The risks of data breaches and ransomware attacks loom larger for businesses navigating the security limbo of unsupported systems.
As your IT partner, we provide a shield against cyber threats, offering vigilant monitoring, timely updates, and proactive measures to safeguard your business from potential data breaches and ransomware attacks.
In the regulatory landscape of GDPR and PCI DSS, compliance is non-negotiable. The consequences range from financial penalties to the potential loss of licenses, intensifying the urgency for businesses to reassess their IT infrastructure.

Your business is not alone – we are here to address your IT concerns and keep your operations running smoothly.
