If Windows 7 is still installed on your computers past its extinction date, be prepared to spend a lot of money on repairs, replacements, and data recovery. The threat landscape is expanding by the second and security hazards are only getting stronger. It won’t matter what security updates you commit to, either. Not deleting Windows 7 from your computers comes with severe consequences.
Eventually, Windows 7 will lift the floodgates to your network, making it easier for hackers to compromise your most important data. And some of these security risks bear enough power to put your entire operation at stake. If you get hit by one of these cyberthreats, expect more downtime, less productivity, and very little satisfaction from your employees and customers.
