Support for Windows 2008 servers is ending

If your company has a windows 2008 server, you need to get in touch with us as soon as possible. 

Microsoft has announced it will end all support for Windows Server 2008 on January 14th 2020. This includes 2008 R2 and SBS 2011.
It's really important that you start thinking about upgrading now.

These servers will no longer receive regular security updates. Unfortunately, this means that we cannot guarantee support for them, and are unable to accept responsibility for their security.

What happens if you don’t upgrade?
After this date, your server will still function. However, the operating system will be left exposed and vulnerable, with future security gaps no longer resolved by Windows updates.

We would also strongly recommend that you seek legal advice on your GDPR status if you continue to use a Windows server 2008 software.
What should you do?

Please get in touch with us as soon as possible to upgrade to the latest Windows server version. Given plenty of time, we can work with you to carefully plan the upgrade process for your business so that it can be done in a measured and controlled way, minimising disruption to your business.

We will be contact our customers over the coming weeks to discuss this in greater detail; however, please feel free to contact us before.
