Is Your Business Ready for the Death of Windows and Office?

Bad news: Microsoft is killing off support for Windows XP (which, to be fair, is an almost thirteen year-old operating system) less than a week from today. That means your Windows XP desktops will no longer receive crucial security updates from Microsoft.

Although less publicized, all security updates are also ending for Microsoft Office 2003 and Microsoft Exchange Server 2003 on that same date. So if your business uses any of these products (and recent statistics show over 25% of all small to mid-sized companies still do), it means your company will have little protection against cyber attacks targeting your corporate email or documents.

The good news is that with cloud computing and low-cost tablets, it's never been easier and more affordable for companies to upgrade to new technology. Amaxra has helped many companies increase their productivity by migrating to the cloud-based Office 365 suite. As a certified reseller and Microsoft Gold Partner, we can manage your cloud migration project to get you off Office 2003/Exchange 2003 and onto Office 365. Even if you decided to move off Windows XP completely and now operate your business on Macs or iPads, we have cost-effective native Office for Mac and Office for iPad options that enable you to work smarter than ever before.

Don't let the death of Windows XP and Office 2003 scare you. Reach out to us and we'll get you safely into the cloud in no time!
