Why you should act now? 
No more security updates
  • Critical security updates keep your organisation protected against attacks
  • 4.2 billion records were compromised in 2016, e.g. through the WannaCry ransomware attack
Compliance risk
  • Critical security updates are essential to ensure GDPR compliance
  • Non-compliance with GDPR can result in hefty fines imposed on your organisation

  • The end of support is a great opportunity to take a closer look at IT modernisation and cloud migration. We are happy to advice you.
What you can do.
