Windows Server 2003 end of life could be the biggest security threat of 2015

The end of Windows Server 2003 this July has the potential to be the "biggest security threat of 2015. What does end of support mean for you?

Most IT administrators should be aware that Windows Server 2003 will reach its end-of-life by July 2015.  After July 14, Microsoft will no longer issue security updates for any version of Windows Server 2003. Additionally, it's currently unclear whether it will allow companies or organisations to pay extra to carry on support.  If you are still running Windows Server 2003 in your datacentre, you need to take steps now to plan and execute a migration strategy to protect your infrastructure. By migrating to Windows Server 2012 R2, Microsoft Azure or Office 365, you can achieve concrete benefits, including improved performance, reduced maintenance requirements, and increased agility and speed of response to the business.

After the recent migration away from Windows XP, IT departments should be more aware than ever of the dangers of using an out-of-date platform. And yet, the lack of awareness surrounding Server 2003 is about to pose an unprecedented security threat to businesses all over the world.

IT community isn't giving Server 2003's demise much of a second thought. From an analysis of over 5,000 IT publications it reported that Server 2003 received just five per cent of the coverage that Windows XP garnered last April.

Estimates on the number of Windows Server 2003 users vary wildly from a modest 2.6 million to the heady 11 million.  Although this was reduced by the number that were still using Windows XP last year, it's still a significant amount.

If you would like to know more about upgrading from Windows Server 2003 please contact Maria West on 01268 494160 or email maria.west@yellowspring.co.uk
