London, UK, April 8, 2014 – On the day that Microsoft ends support for Windows XP, 1E, the global leader in IT efficiency software, announces that it will offer customers full support for all its products running on Windows XP until the end of 2014, completely free.
“The majority of our customers have taken advantage of our technologies to fulfill a Windows XP migration and, but we understand that some will continue to run pockets of XP for a variety of reasons, for example, to adhere to regulatory compliance or run essential legacy apps,” comments Geoff Collins, VP of Product Management at 1E.
“While 1E recommends permanent migration away from Windows XP as soon as possible to ensure devices remain healthy and secure, we are committed to ensuring all our customers can continue to take advantage of the industry’s best and most effective suite of IT efficiency tools,” Collins adds.
