On April 8, 2014, Microsoft will end support for the decade-old Windows XP as well as Office 2003. This means you will no longer receive updates, including security updates from Microsoft.
Get Modern with Windows 8 Pro and the new Office.
The security and privacy implications of this event could have significant impacts on your business. Migration is a time-consuming activity, requiring extensive planning and preparation, so if you’re running either of these products you should take action soon.
|Work more Securely||Without critical Windows XP security updates, your information may become vulnerable. Windows 8 Pro and the new Office offer enhanced security features like built-in firewall, anti-virus, rootkit malware protection and Rights Management for emails and attachments.|
|Get the latest Software||Many software and hardware vendors will no longer support their products that run on Windows XP. Newer versions of your line of business apps are supported on Windows 8. For example, the new Office takes advantage of the modern Windows and will not run on Windows XP.|
|Stay Supported||When problems arise, online and phone-based technical support will unfortunately no longer be available. Continue to work on a supported platform with Windows 8 Pro and the new Office.|
|Reduce Downtime||The risks of business disruption could increase because of the lack of supported software and the increasing age of hardware running Windows XP. Moving to Windows 8 Pro and the new Office in a timely, planned manner will reduce downtime later.|
This is your opportunity to see how 10 years of innovation in both Windows 8 Pro and the new Office (either Office 365 or Office Standard 2013) can help your business.
