Technology end-of-life/support dates are no joke.

December 27, 2018

In the coming year, how will your organization be less vulnerable to security threats, remain in compliance, and continue to receive the latest product support?

Quick answer: Upgrade.

Review the chart below and ensure that your Microsoft products are not about to expire. The chart quickly points out some significant end-of-life/support dates that are on the horizon for some of the more popular Microsoft products, including Windows 7, Exchange 2010, and Office 2010. 

It seems these dates are far out, but in reality, upgrade discussions should begin now in order to prepare appropriately. By applying upgrades before products fall out of support, your business will be less vulnerable to security threats, remain in compliance, and continue to receive the latest product support.

Taking a moment to remember...

November 09, 2018

Every Veterans Day, I take a moment to reflect on the flag and the millions of veterans who have helped defend our principles.  In peace time, they have trained and been ready for the worst, protecting us from potential threats and sending a message of our strength around the world. During a war, they have traveled to faraway places, been separated from their families, and put their lives on the line for our freedom.
