end of support

It’s no secret that Windows 7 support ends in Jan 2020. Did you know that support is also ending for Windows Server 2008 on this date, followed by Office 2010 in October 2020? We'll help you get ready.

Let BT guide your Microsoft end of support migration strategies

End of support means exactly that. No new software updates, no technical support and crucially, no security updates or hotfixes. If you're still using Windows 7, Office 2010 or Server 2008 in your organisation after support ends, they may become more vulnerable to viruses and security risks.  Now's the time to make the shift to modern replacement solutions.  The information below details the crucial end of support dates you need to be aware of, plus provides links to useful information about the alternatives.


Windows 7 end of support - 14 Jan 2020

Support for Windows 7 ends on January 14, 2020.  If you continue to use Windows 7 on your desktop or laptop PCs after support has ended, they will still work, but may become more vulnerable to security risks and viruses.  Now's the time to make the shift to a new device.
