May 2017 will go down as a notorious month in the history of cyber-attacks. It wasn’t just the destructive scale of WannaCry2 that singled it out to universal condemnation, but the profile and human importance of one of its earliest and biggest victims: the UK’s National Health Service.
The main lesson of WannaCry would prove to be one close to 1E’s heart: when it comes to software upgrades, today’s organizations need to #StayCurrent. The consequences of running outdated operating systems can be too great.
We were delighted, subsequently, to see one of our own customers repeating this very message in the pages of Dark Reading. As a system administrator for Riverside Health System, Kenny Covington felt the NHS’s pain particularly keenly, and he told Riverside’s own migration history and future plans in his piece, Advice for Windows Migrations: Automate as Much as Possible.
Whether you happened to read Kenny’s thoughts or not, this exclusive, updated case study offers more technical insight on how 1E’s Nomad helped Riverside get to Windows 7, and how Riverside plans to use it to accelerate its pending migration to Windows 10.
