Windows 10 is the future for a secure modern workplace.
You need it to increase user productivity and mobility in addition to providing more security from bad actors. In 451 Research’s latest Data Threat Report, 46% of organizations surveyed had a data breach in 2018. In other words, we need to make it harder for hackers to steal a company’s data.
The sooner enterprises can migrate to Windows 10, the sooner they can take advantage of these benefits. But to move to Windows 10 and Microsoft’s new Windows as a Service model means more frequent updates. This requires a different approach to Windows management.
There is now less than 12 months to go before the Windows 7 end of support deadline of January 14th, 2020.
Many enterprises with IT teams already overstretched, are struggling to establish how they are going to cross the finishing line to complete their Windows 10 migration and meet this impending deadline. We’ve seen that a common challenge across enterprises is managing updates for an increasing number of remote users. Distribution points are expensive, and a lack of visibility of software puts stress on an already overwhelmed IT team.
There is a fear of running unsupported devices, exposing companies to cyber attacks, and possibly having to pay Microsoft a handsome sum.
That price will also increase each year in a private agreement to continue supporting their old equipment. All of this should be enough to stop IT management in their tracks and ask the questions, “How can we pick up the pace required to meet our Windows 10 migration deadline while easing the pain of IT? Can we free up IT resources and increase their ability to better control and manage all their Windows endpoints? Is there a way to improve the user experience and productivity? People are throwing money at the problem hoping it will just go away. Can we recover any of that money?” All important things to ask.
A long-term solution is required. Not a temporary band-aid fix.
