…you won’t be receiving security updates.

With the unbelievable amounts of money spent last year on remediating breaches from unpatched software and out-of-date systems, chances are you’re going to want to update to Windows 10 before the deadline.

A common question we get is, “Why do so many people wait to update?”. It usually has something to do with managing whole machine replacements, administering wipe-and-loads, and getting in sync with remote workers. And of course, you can’t leave out the budget factor. Gartner tells us that the typical cost to migrate a PC to Windows 10 will run $256 to $445. But, spoiler alert, 1E can help you save nearly $200, depending on the migration process employed. Luckily for you, Gartner has laid out a migration cost model, customized for your environment, to help you budget your migration costs.

But wait, there’s more…

We have a plethora of resources for you to peruse to help you on your way to a secure Windows 10. Take a look:
